MAMBO: 3Ø1 Years of Shelf Indulgence

Reg Mombassa Mechangaroo with pencil 2015  charcoal and coloured pencil on paper Artist collection

MAMBO is loud, unorthodox and quirky and one of Australia’s most recognisable design brands. It has also been the incubator for some of Australia’s most renowned artists and designers such as Novocastrian’s Bruce Goold and Michael Bell, with other noted Australian artists Reg Mombassa and Gerry Wedd to name but a few. With its broad range of appeal from poster design, painting, printmaking, ceramics, surfboard design and even pinball machine design, the scope of works and artists that have collaborated with this iconic label are broad.

This thirty plus year survey of work showcases the humour and offbeat attitude synonymous with MAMBO.
