Through his whimsical and playful artworks, Mau Mau creates deeply critical and metaphorical art which tackles our contemporary world. He brilliantly combines political, environmental, and cultural commentary in his work – usually perfectly blended with his trademark character of a mischievous and fun-loving Fox. Mau Mau presents fresh air and a new approach to the art world. He has been creating for more than two decades and making people question our everyday reality.
His jolly artworks are tricking the viewers into contemplating the underlying seriousness of his messages about capitalism, advertising, politics, and our contemporary society.
