MULGA THE ARTIST

Mulga is Joel Moore, a Sydney based artist, freelance illustrator and poet who paints murals, designs t-shirts and runs the Mulga brand. He left his finance job in March 2014 to focus exclusively on the making of the art and chilling with his wife and 3 children.

Known for his unique style of intricate line work & bright colours, 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 untrammelled use of colour and is made up of textured shapes and intricate line work that transcendently floats with emotion.

Mulga enjoys writing a weird poem for every one of his creations because who doesn’t like a weird poem and he reckons it’s a neato way to make people smile.
