ADNATE + KAFF-EINE FOR AMNESTY WRITE FOR RIGHTS 2015

This has to be my most inspiring project of 2015 – getting two of my favourite Melbourne’s street artists to collaborate for the first time on a large wall in St.Kilda. The brief was – use local artists to paint a big mural in a highly visible spot to help raise awareness of the Write for Rights campaign run by Amnesty International. The campaign gets signatures from people all over the world that are then used to rally authorities to release innocent people who have been wrongly imprisoned. The campaign has over the years had loads of success stories including Ai Weiwei. Yorm Bopha, the subject of this mural, was successfully released in 2014 whilst this year, one of the cases that need our help is Phyoe Phyoe who was jailed in Myanmar for nine years for organising a peaceful student protest. You can help by signing the petition here  and check out the awesome video by Cale Rodriguez here Big ups to Giles at StreetArtMurals Australia for bringing me in
