Biography/History

Part of the unsanctioned art campaign, #BushfireBrandalism, which appeared on the streets of Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane during February 2020. The 78 advertising posters, related to the current climate crisis, devastating drought and unprecedented bush fires, were a direct reaction to the feelings of hopelessness and powerlessness experienced nationwide.
