A Melbourne-based comedian and artist, who made headlines earlier last month for her fairy bread mural of Victorian Premier Dan Andrews, is back with another eye-catching piece. 

This time, Casey Gothard, 25, has created an incredible artwork dedicated to the iconic ladies of Fountain Lakes, Kath & Kim. 

The piece is available for viewing outside of Italian restaurant Brunetti Oro on Flinders Lane in Melbourne’s CBD, and was erected as the ‘perfect display of Australian culture’.

Speaking to News.com.au on World Fairy Bread Day, which is marked on November 24, Casey said she didn’t want to make a political statement with her latest mural so chose to emulate Kath & Kim, played by Gina Riley and Jane Turner in the beloved TV show.

‘I just love them, so SO much. Too much perhaps,’ Casey said about Kath and Kim.  

‘They are the cultural and social glue that holds us together… To the people who say Australia has no culture, I urge you to watch Kath & Kim,’ she said.

One year for Halloween, Casey even dressed up with a friend as mother and daughter duo Kath & Kim. 

Casey, who works in asset management during the day, said she first came up with the Dan Andrews piece while bored in lockdown in Melbourne.

She said she likes the fact that her work ‘isn’t permanent’ because it’s made from bread that goes stale.

Funds raised by the Kath & Kim mural go towards mental health charity Reachout.com.

Casey now has an online store full of T-shirts and bags with her fairy bread designs on them. A Kath & Kim tote retails for $25. 

Last month, Casey’s Dan Andrews artwork went viral on TikTok after she finished the unique portrait made with 126 pieces of bread.

‘@Dan Andrews, I just want to get on the beers,’ Ms Gothard wrote, being in Victoria’s strict lockdown at the time. 

The footage showed Ms Gothard spreading 100s and 1000s onto bread at her table filled with crusts from pieces of bread. 

Ms Gothard told Daily Mail Australia that the mural, which people have now named ‘Fairy Dan’, took about ten hours to complete.

‘It started quite systematic, but ended up with me covered in butter trying to fend off my dog at 1am on Monday morning,’ she said.
