Party Duck

It’s Party Duck! I was commissioned to paint him for the upcoming Wollongong Uni Garden Party.
An Ode to Party Duck
There was a duck and he was a grumpy dude
Some people called him evil duck others called him rudeHe ruled the Wollongong Uni lawn with an iron feather
His methods were extremely brutal but also kind of clever

He terrorised all the students and teachers alike
If he saw you with a sandwich he’d chase you off and then take a bite

Swimming in the duck pond one day he ran out of luck
He was ambushed by the Death Feather gang and stabbed by another duck

That day he may have died a violent death but his duck spirit lives on
No longer an evil one but one that’s full of fun

So raise your glass and give a cheer for party duck is here
For good times and fun shall be had whenever he is near

Remy the Rainbow Lion

 

Remy the Rainbow Lion at MCIC UNSW - web

I painted Remy the Rainbow Lion on the window of the Michael Crouch Innovation Centre at the University of New South Wales for their Climate Change Festival.

The story of Remy

Remy the Rainbow Lion was the most magical lion that ever lived. He was heaps bigger than a regular lion, like at least 4.5 times larger in diameter.

Whenever there was a big storm in the area where he lived he would run up the mountain like a crazed mountain goat and when the clouds would pass by the Cliff of Wonders he would leap off and land on the clouds and go for a magical ride as if he was Aladdin on his magic carpet.

After going for a bit of a ride he would sometimes get so excited that he would do a roar of glee and out would pop a magic lion rainbow the likes of which the savannah has never seen before.

Sometimes when there was more than one rainbow in the sky at the same time that was because his brother Barry was also going for a ride on the clouds and also getting a bit excited.

Wayne the Wolf

Mulga and Wayne and Deb

Please meet Wayne the Wolf.

I painted him live during the filming of this Sundays Foxtel’s arts show, Event with Deborah Hutton.

The episode airs on Foxtel Arts channel at 5pm on 1 November 2015.

The original painting of Wayne the Wolf is available to purchase from my online shop here.

Prints of Wayne the Wolf are available here.

An Ode to Wayne the Wolf

There was this wolf and his name was Wayne
He had the most magical colours and none were the same

He liked to prance on the rainbow while howling at the sun
Because as we know prancing on rainbows is the best of fun

The End

Cheers Art Pharmacy for inviting me on the show.

Chief Great Beard

Chief Beard-web

I painted Chief Great Beard recently and he is based on a track from Little May’s debut album “For the Company’.

He is available to buy as a print and on men’s tees.

An Ode to Chief Great Beard

There was this dude and he was the chief
Before he was the boss his name was Keith
He used to be just a regular guy in the tribe
That was before growing a beard he did decide
First his beard was ok then it was good then it was great
That was the point at which he took control of his fate
He became all that he was meant to be
He was a man destined to be wild and free
He rode around the place on a huge buffalo called Bill
And his hunting skills were so superb he always ate his fill
One time when he was in mortal combat with a rival tribe
His beard stopped some arrows from which he would surely have died
He left them in there as a reminder to one and all
That a beard can be the difference between life or your downfall

An Ode to Zan the Zebra

Zan the Zebra was a special zebra indeed
She was a radio DJ in her land of Zimbabwe

While off the air she would whip out her sax for a toot
Jamming along to the songs was a real kind of hoot

Once when jamming along Zan didn’t realise she was on the air live
All the animal kingdom heard her and really loved her jive

All the listeners kept calling requesting more saxy Zan grooves
And many where amazed how well she played the sax with hooves

The demand was so huge that she got her own sax show
An hour every day of sax Zan jams saw her popularity grow

One day she got a call from sax legend Kenny G
And agreed to perform on his new tour called ‘My saxophone and me’

The tour was a success and she received rave reviews
The highlight being a five antler rating from critic Tony the Moose

Newtown Art Seat

For the month of July 2015 I displayed 3 bearded dude heads in the Newtown Art Seat. I called the artwork “Beards, beards, beards”.

There was a poem that accompanied the 3 bearded dude heads, it went like this.

An Ode to Beards, Beards, Beards

Beards are nice and useful too
They are great to house your spanners or flamingo crew

Chilli Charles the Chilli

Chilli Charles the chilli

This is Chilli Charles, he is a magical chilli and also the hottest chilli in the “Chilli Shack” (some say the world) and his life long dream is to be eaten and to chilli burn the mouth of the individual that eats him.

This is the dream of every chilli but none more so than Charles who has for wished for this ever since he was a tiny little baby chilli.

Growing up he pumped iron every day increasing his hotness to such a level that even the toughest chilli eaters fear Charles’s heat.

The whole chilli community knows that once Charles is eaten something magical will happen but no one knows exactly what will happen.

Cap’n Flouro Phil at Bondi Beach

I painted Cap’n Flouro Phil at the promenade on Bondi Beach.

Sun on my face
The ocean for me
Is a magical place

Council of Flamingos Mural

In April I painted the Council of Flamingo’s on the walls of La Piadina in Bondi as part of a monthly street art program curated by Activated Walls.

The Story behind the Council of Flamingo’s

The Council of Flamingos are comprised of 13 flamingo’s and they are the ruling body of all flamingos worldwide.

When they meet the synergy that results is rated 4 out of 5 stars and produced great ideas like those sweet flamingo sculptures that are in peoples front yards.

They also thought of the idea for every flamingo to be coloured bright pink because before they were black in colour and no one liked them and now that they are pink heaps of people love them and they are rated in the top 5 of all time popular birds.

There is one flamingo on the council who is an associate and he is the one who doesn’t have a top hat.

To become a fully fledged member he needs to pass a series of rigorous tests one of which is completing a super hard soduku puzzle.

The End.

Rod the Rad Koala

Rod the Rad Koala painting by Mulga the Artist - web

An Ode to Rod the Rad Koala

A radical dude is the koala called Rod
He cruises about town in his vintage hot rod

He works in the factory that makes eucalyptus drops
And in his lunch break he eats three paddle pops

On his days off he heads down with his crew
To the beach to get tubes and a meat pie or two

When the waves are flat he plays volleyball on the beach
And for a koala he’s got quite exceptional reach
