As an established Brisbane creative, Rick Hayward translates over 15 years of traditional sign-writing and 9 years of collaborative public art as a contemporary studio and public art practice alongside his commercial projects.
In response to his commercial background, Hayward navigates the space between craftsman and artist with environmental and anthropological attentiveness. The Artist's practice is built on observation and documentation, research and reflection, and spans large scale murals to studio works utilising skills and materials practiced in traditional sign-writing.
Reductive collagic compositions referencing post-painterly abstraction, through to typographic works grounded in his understanding of commercial sign writing, Hayward's work represents a fluid intertextuality between commercial and contemporary realms.
