Ultimo | Mulga the Artist

Ultimo Street Art | Mulga


I don't think I've ever come across an artist who puts more effort into their work than Mulga does. I enjoy everything about the artists work, from the visual treat to the strange story he gives every character. The artist has 2.8k posts on Instagram and while not all his posts are murals every.single.mural has it's own story. I like the investment. 

I often wonder why or what the artist was thinking when they paint. Mulga's seems to spend a great deal of time thinking of backgrounds for his character 😂

A statement from the Artist

"An Ode to Three Rad Birds

There were these birds and they were pretty rad
Whenever someone met them they'd be really glad

They always had the best time any time of day
If there was some fun to be had you know they'd find a way

Rory the Rosella would always have a strawberry smoothie
Walking around with his five panel looking pretty groovy

Mitchell the Cockatoo had the sweetest of green coats
It was good for the shops and even going on boats

He also never left home without his bandana so trusty
He thought he was good at karate but he was pretty crusty

Then there was Kookaburra Craig with his beats so smooth
Always listening to those tunes and getting on his groove
The End"

The mural is attached to ''The Broadway'' in Ultimo. It faces the carpark of the adjacent building which is conveniently a parking lot. After climbing four flights of stairs I had the perfect vantage point.
