Max is passionately concerned about the environment and has made many mural installations using recycled materials. His most popular projects have involved students, staff and parents hand-painting recycled CD’s, which are then used to create a vibrant wall installation, showing off the patterns and designs for all to see.
Many other types of murals, ANZAC Day artworks, printmaking projects and large classroom-project wall canvases are among Max's many successful projects completed with schools.
Max can handle most requests for projects, and can devise specialised programs for individual schools and their needs.
