“ Camille Javal (FKA Hayton :) is a multidisciplinary artist, designer and camilleon originally from Melbourne, Australia, CURRENTLY BASED IN NYC. She is most known for creating abstract paintings you can step into and fine art murals in residential and public spaces. “

Initially working with the medium of collage and paper, Camille’s artwork evolved onto walls and wall sized canvases as she became more curious about the idea of space - how we use it, how it makes us feel. The artist transforms the places she paints by creating immersive artworks that are entered rather than simply observed. Alongside her passion for place, she explores functionally how color, light and mark making can stimulate well-being, productivity, imagination and community engagement.

Camille’s mural artwork has been described as an intersection between art ☆ fashion ☆ installation ☆ interiors, which = her happy sweet spot.

Through slowly finding her own (creative) voice, Camille is excited to help other women also find theirs. After personally experiencing healing through her artistic practice, she champions healing through the arts and addressing community and social needs with creative means.

Camille is curious, nurtures a lifelong connection to color and is creatively and intellectually restless. Her ninja use of color was recognized at the Dulux Colour Awards over two consecutive years; she holds a Bachelor of Creative Arts from the University of Melbourne and graduated from Shillington College with a Cert IV in Design.

In a previous life she was known as 'that girl' from nygirlofmydreams.com.
