FUCKING HYENAS

Fucking Hyenas explores Kakopiero’s first collection, which focuses on the ongoing refugee crisis – an unfiltered jug of emotion; good, bad and the ugly truth. Digital art on garments captures the fear and uncertainty that refugees endure throughout their transient and unsettled life. Carrying their world on their shoulders, how heavy that must feel.

The series is based on one particular refugee, more creature than woman; the harsh realities of life have morphed her into the figure she is. Sad hollowed eyes, frail skin and heavy chains weigh her down, yet she stands strong, ready to face what comes next. Faith is the one thing holding her up, but how much longer can she endure this life before defeat overcomes her?
