Australian Mural Artist
Mural artist HAPPY DECAY is based on the South Coast of NSW. Most of his murals painted are in Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney. He does travel around Australia for mural work and has also painted murals in Brisbane, Bendigo, Miami Gold Coast and other smaller rural towns.
HAPPY DECAY provides a complete mural service from consultation, conceptual development, project management, and art curation to final mural installation.
A big focus of his large-scale paintings as a mural artist is to help create a better public space through art. Placemaking has become an important aspect of his process. Taking into consideration the space and who uses it is important just as much as the visual look of the mural artwork.

Mural Art Style
I like to work with positive imagery with a little twist of quirkiness. Most of my murals have a bright colour scheme and move from characters to abstract forms.
I have worked with a number of different clients ranging from schools to corporate government departments. Each mural I do is customised around the client’s needs though flavoured with my style of mural art.
So if you are wanting a mural painted and wish to get in contact with me to ask more questions about what I can do for you then please give me a call at 0431 104 026 or you can use my contact email form.
And if you like you can also view all my mural work in my showcase section on this website.
Mural Artist FAQs
Each mural job has to be priced per job. There are a number of factors to consider when pricing a mural, eg the cost of materials, the development of the design concept and other possible needs for equipment hire.
How long a mural lasts will depend upon the preparation of the wall, paints used, aerosol or acrylic house paints and then if the mural is located in full sun as opposed to being indoors away from the natural elements.
An initial design brief with help guide the outcome. With the right questions about the location and the people who use the space HAPPY DECAY will create a concept based on those answers and with further discussion with the client.
With each mural project, a timeframe will be included for how long it will take to paint. Some time factors will be the detail of the mural, the size and also if the wall is affected by the weather.
