Joel Moore, widely known as the Australian street artist Mulga, is a formidable creative presence. Since the inception of his artistic journey, he has been captivated by the grandeur of gorillas, a recurring motif that permeates his work.
Mulga’s artistic career took flight in 2012 when he held his inaugural art exhibition, marking the beginning of his artistic trajectory. Swiftly, his distinctive style garnered recognition—meticulous line work interwoven with vibrant hues—conjuring a realm where bearded men with a tropical flair roam freely, tigers don diamond sunglasses, and gorillas reign supreme, akin to a groovy planet of simian sovereignty. Yet, it was a mural painted at the legendary Bondi Beach that truly kindled Mulga’s fervor for gorillas. From that pivotal moment onwards, his obsession with depicting gorillas through murals and artwork flourished, captivating major brands such as Samsung, Coca Cola, Red Bull, Lego, and Adidas.
In 2014, Mulga courageously bid adieu to his finance job, embracing the life of a full-time artist, thereby unleashing his creativity and allowing his profound adoration for gorillas to shine unabated. His popularity and commercial success burgeoned exponentially, propelling him towards his latest artistic venture, ‘MulgaKongz.‘ Through this groundbreaking NFT collection, Mulga transports his captivating animal creations onto the blockchain, inviting enthusiasts to partake in the joyous escapades of gorillas and their tropical animal comrades, as they embark on a quest for summer delights and uplifting vibes. Throughout his journey, Mulga remains a devoted artist at his core, ceaselessly pushing the boundaries of his creativity while inspiring others to embark on their own artistic explorations.
