What are you thankful for? Who are you thankful to? Kaff-eine invites LGBTQIA+ folks and allies to become part of Infinite Thanks, her national collaborative art project dedicated to rainbow heroes and gods. Infinite thanks is a growing collection of small devotional paintings based on personal stories of LGBTQIA+ gratitude and thankfulness; it offers rainbow folks space to share their lives and creatively express intimate moments of gratitude, and allows audiences insight into the private lives of LGBTQIA+ communities.

Adapted for Covid times, this special FUSE Darebin chapter of Infinite Thanks encourages people to collaborate safely from home. Send your story of thankfulness, and your LGBTQIA+ hero to Kaff; from these words she’ll create a devotional painting, which will become part of the travelling collection. Alternatively, create your own painting for Infinite Thanks. Kaff-eine particularly welcomes Darebin-connected stories.

Follow Kaff’s paintings in progress, and view finished artworks on our Instagram and here on the project page. 

Proudly supported by the Darebin City Council's FUSE Fund Program

 

KAFF-EINE - LEAD ARTIST

Lawyer turned street artist Kaff-eine has painted public walls around the world, while pursuing realist watercolour portraiture in her Melbourne studio. Combining creativity with a strong social conscience, she currently makes art and film projects with a variety of communities, inviting audiences to engage with social and political issues. Her filmmaking is collaborative, striking and raw; while her painting practice, which includes photorealistic work and stylised characters, is loaded with symbolism and narrative.
