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 into print making, small press publishing and large-scale painting.
Fikaris has worked extensively on projects locally and internationally with varying communities as well as art institutions and educational bodies. As a freelance artist and community driven project leader, Fikaris has been publishing anthologies under the name Silent Army comic collective since 2002 and in 2017 was awarded the Platinum Ledger Award for outstanding service to Australian comics.
Fikaris is currently compiling a collection of works for a European publisher due out in late 2019.
