Havaianas x Mulga


 

We caught up with Joel Moore AKA Mulga, the Sydney based artist behind two of our vibrant new season prints to learn more about him and his love for art!


How did you become an artist and what was the journey like to where you are now?

That's a big question and one I could go on about for awhile so here is the short version. I always loved drawing but never thought it could be something that I could make a living from, so after school I went to uni and got a Bachelor of Economics and then worked in the finance industry for ten years.

Then I got over it and decided to have a bit more of a go at being an artist. I started drawing every night and then put my art up on a blog and then that led to the chance to have an art show in small local gallery in my neighbourhood.

I then made tees and started going to Bondi markets every Sunday selling tees and art prints and stuff, and after doing that for 2 years whilst still having my full time finance job I was able to quit my job and become a full time art dude.

Now I'm living the dream and I'm lucky enough to have heaps of work happening (I just wish there were more hours in the day!).

What was the inspiration behind your artwork for Havi’s? 

The tiger and koala design is all about being best buds and creating sweet synergy when you work together. The other design is a celebration of the ocean and summer times and the groovy creatures hanging out in it. I love the ocean, it's one of my favourite places to be. 


What is your favourite thing about summer?

I love hitting the beach, swimming, going boating and not having to wear a wetsuit when I go surfing. 


What do you get up to in your free time? 

I love surfing and spending time with my fam, we've been going to skateparks lately and the kids have been getting into it which has been cool. I also like to write and record music with my band, @mulgasroom, that's real fun.

What’s the coolest place your Havi’s have taken you to? 

Just this week I was skateboarding on the Goldie in my Havi's that was a cool place.


Do you have any plans for summer?

This summer I'll be opening my annual pop up shop in Westfield Miranda and after Christmas I'll be hitting the beach and doing a little bit of holidays and lots of swimming. Can't wait!
