WHO WE ARE

PABS & CO is a creative place, with two large cats in permanent residency. Because we love good design (and uncluttered spaces) we created Cat Scrrratch Post as an attractive alternative to those ugly cat posts commonly seen in the market.

 

Our cats Lily and Michael use Cat Scrrratch Post multiple times each day - in fact we have two of them installed here so the cats can decide when and where they want to scratch and stretch.

WHO IS PABLO?

Pablo Francis (aka SecureCrayon) is an Australian artist and commercial designer who has worked with coffee, acrylic, and ink on canvas for more than 25 years. He likes the flow, immediacy and unpredictability of these mediums.

 

The Artist lives and paints in St Kilda East, Melbourne. He takes inspiration from the grand old Victorian architecture, iconic seaside neighbourhoods and urban tagging, as well as the glossy elegance of luxury goods.

 

Commercial success with his coffee and ink streetscapes is ongoing, particularly  when the subject is Rome, Paris or Melbourne—all famous for their love of coffee, and their iconic architecture. These renderings have both loose and tight elements, blended with coffee for an earthy, tonal feel. The Artist also paints large-scale murals in private homes and businesses, with a keen eye for the humorous in our challenging times.

 

His work has been shown at a number of commercial spaces including galleries, restaurants and boutiques, and is also held in many private collections throughout the world.

 

He is available for private commissions, including murals.

 

Born 1964, Melbourne Australia
