Australian Artist, David â€˜Meggsâ€™ Hooke has partnered with Good Hood and not-for-profit food rescue organisation, FareShare on a mural for Australiaâ€™s largest charity kitchen.
The mural, Meggsâ€™ most significant solo undertaking to date, took over ten days to complete. The artwork splices Meggsâ€™ technically layered aesthetic with his animated pop cultural bravura was a response to FareShare CEO, Marcus Godinhoâ€™s brief to â€œencapsulate â€“ in a non literal representation â€“ the energy, responsiveness and innovative nature of how the organisation operates.â€
â€œWorking with FareShare was a really positive experience for me,â€ said Meggs. â€œKnowing 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.”
