Submerged is a follow up to Emerge. She isn't trapped. She is free to breathe, but chooses to stay submerged. Not wanting to lose the harmony of the water and leave behind it depths.

Artist Bio:

CLAP Meataxe is an accomplished spray paint muralist, specialising in photorealistic work on the small or large scale. He started painting in the very early 90's with Melbourne graffiti underground culture.

“I feel in love with the world around me. The endless nights alone, in the darkness, in the shadows, creating beauty where there once was none” said the artist.

His lettering slowly evolved into more figurative, artistic styles.

“Although I wasn't blessed with natural artistic talent, I wanted to be so desperately. I barely slept for years, pushing and pushing my craft” he explains.

CLAP Meataxe's perseverance paid off when he was accepted into an Associate Diploma in Visual Arts and a Bachelor Arts Degree in Fine Art at RMIT University. It was there everything started to click and his style evolved.  

At that time, Melbourne had few legal walls and they were extremely hard to acquire. The Brunswick culture was just emerging and galleries had not yet started to advocate for street art. For CLAP Meataxe this didn’t stop the creative process.
