based on the ‘to gather together’ theme of the campaign, MP5 creates murals in his signature bold, monochromatic style. the visuals feature silhouettes of unidentifiable human figures that are not defined by gender or any other labels.

Articles inside the first issue of the CHIME Zine edited by @adameli and art directed by @mp5art, include singer songwriter @gola_official’s account of her childhood in Iran, where she cut her hair short and pretended to be a boy so she could live without the country’s enforced constrictions of females in Hijabs.

Additionally, in partnership with @1granary, the zine will be distributed to universities in Belgium, Finland, France, Israel, Italy, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
