Acclaimed Sydney street artist, Mulga the Artist, is painting a funky Underwater themed mural at Colormaker Industries in Brookvale to mark their 60th birthday.
Mulga AKA Joel Moore, a Sydney based artist, freelance illustrator and poet who paints murals, designs T-shirts and runs the Mulga brand, left his finance job in 2014 to concentrate on his art full time.
Known for his unique style of intricate line work and bright colours using Permaplastik glow paints, Mulga’s art brings to life a world where tropical bearded men run rampant, lions smoke tobacco pipes, tigers wear diamond sunglasses and gorillas rule the world like some kind of funky ’Planet of the Apes’. If you were to describe his art you could say that it, “Pulsates with an unrestrained use of colour and is made up of textured shapes and intricate line work that transcendently floats with emotion”.
From his first art show in early 2012, he has built an impressive creative portfolio and now has more than 56 shows under his belt. He won the AS Colours Little Help Project T-shirt design competition and was awarded gold at the 2013 Illustrators Australia awards. His recent work with brands including Samsung, Coca Cola, Toyota, Red Bull, Carlton, Virgin Mobile, Channel 7 Sunrise, The National Trust and Australia’s Got Talent, have made Mulga the Artist a household name.
Mulga enjoys penning a poem for every one of his art creations because, “Who doesn’t like a weird poem?” and he reckons “It’s a neato way to make people smile”.
Colormaker Industries, in Brookvale, is one of the only remaining paint manufacturers left on the Northern Beaches, selling their products both Australia-wide and globally to people as far away as Iceland.
