Street Artist Australian Mural Painter

Australian street artist HAPPY DECAY lives on the South Coast of NSW, just below Sydney and a short drive across to Canberra. Being close to Canberra makes it easy for me to fly to Melbourne or any city in Australia.

About the Artist – HAPPY DECAY

I did my formal training as an artist at the School of Art in Canberra, Australian Capital Territory. I focused on printing making, illustration and typography.

Later on, I went and did some additional training at the Canberra Institute of Technology to study graphic design. Here I got to learn about the business of design as well as using software that was good for digital illustration.

I’ve always had the fortune to do be able to do illustration work within the design industry. And with my illustration skills and prior painting training, I have branched off into mural work which is the perfect canvas size I like to work with.

If you like you can view more of my street art on my website under the showcase section.

HAPPY DECAY = Bjarni Wark

Originally I was trained in fine arts with a focus on illustration, drawing and letterpress (hand set typography). Later on I learnt Photoshop and Illustrator along with other modern digital illustration techniques.

Now with this combination of traditional & digital drawing I love to work with commercial work from small book type illustration, through to poster and full mural painting sized illustration / digital art.
