Australian Artist, David ‘Meggs’ Hooke has partnered with Good Hood and not-for-profit food rescue organisation, FareShare on a mural for Australia’s largest charity kitchen.
The mural, Meggs’ most significant solo undertaking to date, took over ten days to complete. The artwork splices Meggs’ technically layered aesthetic with his animated pop cultural bravura was a response to FareShare CEO, Marcus Godinho’s brief to “encapsulate – in a non literal representation – the energy, responsiveness and innovative nature of how the organisation operates.”
“Working with FareShare was a really positive experience for me,” said Meggs. “Knowing that not only was I creating one of the largest solo murals I have ever completed, but also helping to beautify and promote such a worthy organisation for such positive, generous people was an incredible feeling. As a street/mural artist we spend a lot of unpaid hours creating our work for the community, so it was awesome to partner with people doing the same thing, but in a different way."
