Well-known in the Sydney art scene and beyond, Mulga the Artist is the funkadelic creator who finds inspiration in the abstract and colourful. Chances are you’ve seen his work somewhere, whether it be the Bondi Beach mural or plastered throughout your local Westfield shopping centre, Mulga works with brands that reflect his love for the summer.
SOOMOM cycling shares similar values, born and bred on Sydney’s Northern Beaches the brand has partnered with Mulga for a limited edition collection of apparel ready for early morning rides and cafes everywhere.
Taking the majority of his inspiration from the natural environment, and being a big surfer and swimmer himself, Mulga reflects this in his art. Fun and funky animals are his staple style, with each character embodying specific vibes reflected in the products and brands he collaborates with. For this collection with SOOMOM, Mulga adds his groovy characters to a range of cycling jerseys for both men and women, including:
