PHIBS!

by Water For Water - Monday, November 28, 2011 

Phibs is one of Australia’s most talented graffiti artists.

It is no stretch to say that Phibs paints walls every single day of the year, almost without exception!

Originally from Sydney, Phibs came from a strong graffiti background growing up painting on the train lines of Sydney’s inner suburbs.

Phibs endeavors to promote the value of the art form through outlets such as commissioned murals, youth workshops, exhibitions, and theatrical productions. Whilst Phibs signature is intricate, stencil-like delineated lines and cut-back methods, his work is visibly influenced by the art and mythology of many cultures, both ancient and modern.

Phibs donated his work and signature style to Water For Water Christmas Cards artist series and we think you will love his card.

Max Berry donated artwork to Water For Water's Christmas card project and we think he is amazing!

Max was born in 1987 in Katherine NT and he currently lives and works Sydney. Max works both in the studio and on the street transferring his images from canvas to walls and back again.

Max Berry's work creates a world where every object has a life of its own, a daydream land where houses talk to clouds and characters float playfully in abstracted space. Fascinated by obscure lore and strange unknown lands, his work explores the human condition in a playful journey into the surreal.

This Thursday night in Brisbane, Max is teaming with artist Mark Alsweiler to open their show “All Things Lost” at Nine Lives Gallery, Fortitude Valley.  Their show is set to be an amazing showcase of their individual styles and passion for hand-built sculpture. If you are in Brisbane make sure you go and check out the show.

Thanks to Max for his contribution to the Water For Water Christmas Card project. To purchase a pack of cards - visit the Water For Water online store.

Numskull kindly donated his time and art for Water For Water for our artist designed Christmas cards and we love his card!! The card is a mix of his love for typography & colours, a signature look that Numskull has become recognised for, both locally and internationally.

PHILIPPINES UPDATE: TYPHOON NESAT

http://waterforwater.com.au/images/larger_end.png
by Water For Water - Wednesday, November 02, 2011 

On September 27th 2011, Typhoon Nesat struck the Philippines resulting in landfall in Caloocan City where Water For Water's Community Water Station is located.

The local government ordered the evacuation of residents living in low-lying areas, cancelled flights and suspended school. The storm triggered flash floods, loss of power and halted daily activities.  

Although the roads to and from Caloocan were difficult to pass through, our Philippines partners mobilised their team and undertook the distribution of relief bags containing packs noodles, canned goods, rice, biscuits and bottles of water from the Community Water Station to those who were severely affected.

Caloocan City's Community Water Station Manager Edwin said "It was a privilege to be part of the relief team...people patiently waited for help...and they were very happy and thankful to receive their relief bags".

A huge thank you to Edwin and our partners in the Philippines for their response and help towards a community in need.
