Maxfield Bala

Artist and Designer

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 art's intense power to resurrect communities and reinvent the common forms of messaging we interact with through the painting of large-scale aerosol 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.
