FOR SYRIA'S CHILDREN
Artist: RONE

Artist: RONE

Inspired by his recent trips to war torn Syria, to make art with children in Aleppo, international artist ELK (Luke Cornish) created the not for profit ‘For Syria’s Children’ (FSC) an Australian fundraising project aiming to provide financial assistance to young Syrians that have been tragically affected by the relentless Syrian civil war.


Below artist: 23rd Key

FSC’s sole objective is to raise vital financial aid that will be directly provided to a number of local (on the ground) Syrian organisations that are in desperate need of supplies for basic amenities in orphanages, medical facilities and schools.

FSC believes in providing absolute transparency as to how donations will be used. There will be minimal fees involved for the fundraising event and financial provisions for the nominated FSC representatives to travel to and from Syria to deliver the financial aid. There will be no other major administrative costs, allowing for a large percentage of all donations to be delivered directly to Syria’s most vulnerable.

Andrew Fairclough - Total Control

Sydney based illustrator and designer Andrew Fairclough’s first solo exhibition ‘Total Control’ features a collection of mixed media works on wood-panel, combining illustrative portraiture, painting and printmaking.

The works explore themes of introspection, confusion, duality and impulse control viewed through the dead-gaze of technological distraction and the mesmerising flow of infinite information that is everywhere and nowhere at once.  


The works explore themes of introspection, confusion, duality and impulse control viewed through the dead-gaze of technological distraction and the mesmerising flow of infinite information that is everywhere and nowhere at once.  

Inspired by dystopian fiction, mid-century illustration and low-brow comics, the resulting body of work constructs an uneasy yet hopeful atmosphere awash with abstract textural explorations and haphazard experiments.

Working mostly under his professional moniker Kindred Studio, Andrew Fairclough is an illustrator, designer and art-director best known for his textural illustrative work and vintage print aesthetic. Having participated in multiple group shows since 2012, Total Control will be Andrew’s first solo exhibition.

Opening: Friday 31st march, 6-8pm. China Heights, 16 Foster Street Surry Hills.
