Maxfield Bala

Artist and Designer

Born in California in 1993, Maxfield Bala began pursuing art at an early age working under his parent's design business, co-developing toy concepts for companies like Hasbro and Mattel. This position lead to the absorption of pop culture references, creative invention, and powerful iconography. Ultimately expressing itself as a teenager, through various multidisciplinary artistic mediums including illustration, and murals created throughout the San Francisco, Bay Area. Bala quickly recognized arts intense power to resurrect communities and reinvent the common forms of messaging we interact with through the painting of large scale mural projects and artistic collaborations. Known for his collage-like style filled with high detail, bold colors and powerful imagery derived from his childhood Maxfield's murals and fine art painting have been the focus of international exhibits, festivals, and brand collaborations.

 

In 2015 He launched Bala Creative, A San Francisco based art and design company to develop grander visions for a larger audience of causes and clients. Bala serves as the Owner and Creative Director of Bala Creative working with companies like Coca-Cola, Sony, and DHL to name a few.
