About Us

 “The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls” Pablo Picasso




CLAP Meataxe Design was founded by Mark “Meataxe” Taylor. Inspired by the colourful artwork spanning the train lines he used to travel as a teenager, a love of spray can art was born. Mark took this love and channeled it into a Bachelors degree in Fine Arts from RMIT University and graduated in 1998.

Since making the move to full time artists, Mark and his crew of talented artist’s work now grace the inside and outside of some of the world’s most prominent and successful gym chains and other businesses. Their aim is to not only complete the work to their customers needs and satisfaction, but also to inspire those frequenting and working within the space in a way they’ve never been inspired before. Art has a way of reaching right into the soul of anyone who is near it – proven by the amount of international press and recognition that has come their way since their inception in 2011.

I get to meet amazing talented people doing what I do, this weekend I met CLAP – Meataxe Design who done this crazy piece of art on the BSN Australia booth, all with spray paint of yours truly! Not only is this man talented, he’s a humble talent is why we hit it off right away, and having known & seen his work on my last visits to Australia it’s a honor to have something done of myself.
