Michael Fikaris is an artist and illustrator with a focus on comics, print making and murals. Exploring a place where the organic and the geometric meet, Fikaris' work is mysterious but hopeful, in monochrome or colour - the work is always confident and sure.
He has exhibited in both professional and guerrilla contexts and his artwork is 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).
Alongside art and illustration, Fikaris is a small press publisher and community arts worker, which has allowed him to work extensively with various communities as well as art institutions and educational bodies. Coordinating printed comic artist anthologies, live events and workshops under the name Silent Army since 2007, Fikaris was awarded the National 'Platinum Ledger' for outstanding service to Australian comics in 2017.
In 2023 he has new books with Kus (EU) and Glom Press (AU).
