Animals Facing left (Idan Shimoni)
How do you describe being a FAKER?
Taking responsibility as a brand by choosing an ethical and cruelty free approach for every step of the production, and making sure no humans or animals will be harmed in the process.
Tell us a little bit about you!
I am an artist and animal rights activist and believe in better future for our planet. My choice with Animals Facing Left was to raise awareness through cute, minimalistic art style instead of showing animals pain and suffering, hoping to remind people just how incredible and sweet animals are.
Why "Animals Facing Left" and what is the goal of your Brand?
The animals are facing left as a sign for humans to notice their right to live free and return to the wild where they belong. Our goal is raising awareness for animal rights through simplistic forms of expression and we hope to spark a change.
