Michael Fikaris is an Australian multidisciplinary artist whose career has spanned nearly 20 years. Initially a central figure in both Melbourne’s comic book and street art movements in the early 2000’s, Fikaris has expanded their oeuvre to work beyond comics into print making, small press publishing and large-scale painting.
Fikaris has worked extensively on projects locally and internationally with smaller communities as well as large art institutions and universities. Fikaris is currently compiling a collection of works for a European publisher supported by Australia Council for the Arts.
Fikaris' work has been collected by the National Gallery of Australia, National Gallery of Victoria and the National Library of Australia and in 2017, Fikaris was awarded the Platinum Ledger Award for outstanding service to Australian comics.
