Melbourne artist teams up with the Brotherhood on a thought-provoking awareness campaign
For Anti-Poverty Week the Brotherhood has released a limited edition tote bag, featuring a striking illustration by award-winning, multi-disciplinary artist Michael Fikaris.
Fikaris has generously contributed an illustration from his latest series, ‘End Points’, featuring two figures wearing gas masks to symbolise the struggle many people have to 'breathe easy' in society – a motif Fikaris has used in much of his art. He works with a range of media including comics, zines, murals and paintings, and is part of the community based collective, Silent Army.
The bag is available for purchase online for $20 if you pick up at our Fitzroy head office, or for $27.50 with postage. Proceeds from sales will be used for our programs and services which support disadvantaged and marginalised people, including young people seeking work, people with disability and refugees.
You can chose from two different image captions: 'Stronger Together' or ‘Fight Poverty'.
