Welcome to the House of Mullet
Last night we all checked into the House Of Mullet, an exhibition of original Mambo sketches, finished art, posters & limited edition prints from the hyperactive imagination of TCSS founder and artist Jim Mitchell.
House of Mullet showcased Jim’s time as part of the stable of original Mambo artists. The idea for the exhibition sparked when Jim had to fix a busted runner on his plan drawers. Taking apart drawer after drawer revealed an entire body of work that had been sitting idle in the dark for years. Over seventy artworks will be on display, including preliminary drawings, finished art and proofs covered in doodles, pantone swatches and notes all aimed at pitching to Dare and the rest of the Mambo design team.
“Mambo was a very unique company combining art, surf, music and politics. I knew I was involved with something special but probably didn’t realise its full significance till later on, once it had moved on to something else. One week you’re being commissioned to design an alternative Aussie flag, next a tee print protesting Pauline Hanson’s bullshit and then you’re in China painting the walls of one of the first night clubs in Guangzhou after the doors opened to the West. It was endlessly entertaining.”
