Dolphin Beard Donnie 2Mulga the ArtistMulga painting at FBi Radio 10th birthday party1ronnieweb5

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.

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.

Having his first art show and launching his art career in early 2012 his creative portfolio to date is an impressive one with over 56 shows under his belt, winner of AS Colours Little Help Project t-shirt design competition, gold at the 2013 Illustrators Australia awards, finalist and peoples choice winner at Hazelhurst’s 2013 Art on Paper prize and his recent work with Coca Cola, Toyota, Red Bull, MTV, Adidas,  Microsoft, Slurpee, Virgin Mobile, Jagermeister, Flight of the Conchords, Universal Music, Sol Beer, Mambo, Oporto, Channel 7 Sunrise, The National Trust and Australia’s Got Talent.

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.
