Pattern for Yemen was an initiative by A Friend of Mine and The Souvenir Society enlisting the help of 15 local and international artists that helped raise funds for the crisis in Yemen, one of the largest humanitarian issues currently facing the global community. It was a night filled with laughter and generosity, and together we have raised and donated $40,000 for the Unicef Yemen Appeal!

We were commissioned by 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art and architecture firm Villa + Villa to design two murals in World Square shopping centre in the heart of Sydney's Asian district. Both hand-painted murals are connected through a shared conceptual foundation to combine eastern and western design sensibilities – strokes and characters from a variety of Asian languages have been woven into the fabric of the mural patterns.

Like the first mural, our second mural is also based on strokes and characters from Asian languages, but woven into interlocking geometric shapes.
