Concept and place are essential to Component’s work. Born and raised in Grey Lynn, Component taught himself the art of stencilling. The street was his canvas, his means for critiquing society.
Despite his community focus, his work has been seen throughout New Zealand. From spray-painting city walls to working with canvas for the country’s most prestigious galleries, Component is travelling a journey that brings colour and consideration to the streets and homes of Aoteaora. Component was shaped by his environment. Now he helps shape it.
