Maxwell Arthur (Brisbane, 1983) is a second-generation Australian artist. He left Australia in 2003 and now resides in the UK where he has worked and studied in multiple creative fields. After receiving a BA(Hons) in Print from Brighton University in 2001 he went on to graduated from the Royal College of Art where he completed a two-year Masters program in Print in 2023. His rich life experiences have fermented in him a particular worldview, which he attempts to translate through his art practice. His work often returns to the thematic undercurrents of Post Colonialism and Responsibility, Intersectionality, Equity, Human rights, Gender Identity and Absurdism.
Maxwell Arthur is an anti-disciplinary artist, who believes that artists can often feel limited or bound to one single medium, thus he attempts to work outside the boundaries of traditional disciplines. As an artist he seeks to offer the audience a window into the life of minorities and marginalised peoples.
