MP 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 various communities as well as art institutions and educational bodies. As an art publisher and community driven project leader, Fikaris has been coordinating printed anthologies under the name Silent Army since 2002 and in 2017 was awarded the Platinum Ledger Award for outstanding service to Australian comics. His art is held in permanent collections around the world as well as locally with NGV (Living Artists Collection) and NGA (Book Arts Collection).
