Fikaris is an Australian born artist and illustrator, studying the spaces between the natural and the manufactured. This study informs many of the motifs seen in their work, expressed with figurative and abstract objectives in a practice addressing issues surrounding place, purpose and identity.
Alongside a fine arts practice, Fikaris is an award winning editor, publisher and community arts practitioner, who has been coordinating projects under the name Silent Army Projects since 2007.
A central figure in both the comic book and street art movements in their hometown of Melbourne since the early 2000's , they have exhibited in professional and guerrilla contexts both locally and abroad. Fikaris has artwork held in numerous private collections along with the National Gallery of Victoria (Living Artists Collection), State Library of Victoria (Artists' Books Collection) and National Gallery of Australia (Book Arts Collection).
