About MULGA (Joel Moore)
Mulga is Sydney based artist, Joel Moore, a man with unique style and inspiration. He creates unforgettable artworks of the things he loves to draw; bearded characters, gorillas, lions and magical creatures with laser beam eyes. Originally Mulga worked in economics and finance, until he realised that making art was much more fun.
Having his first art show and launching his art career in early 2012 his creative portfolio to date is an impressive one with over 60 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 and 2015 Art on Paper prize and his recent work with Red Bull, MTV, Adidas, Microsoft, Schweppes, Mambo, Westfield, Paypal, Oporto, Myer and Virgin mobile.
Mulga is also incredibly clever with words, creating poems that sit alongside his art, adding even more depth and intrigue to his already engaging work. He is currently celebrating the release of his magical colouring book and working on a children’s book in between designing t shirts, painting murals and running the Mulga clothing label.
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.
