Random Monday: Mambo – 30 Years of Shelf-Indulgence

Random Monday: Mambo – 30 Years of Shelf-Indulgence

Remember Mambo? The brand that was famous for its off the wall designs, political digs and really an homage to Australia’s favourite past-time – surfing. I first came across the brand when I first came to Australia. I loved the (can I call it quirky?) comic-like illustrations and the boldness of the slogans, drawing and ideas. To me it was a brand that dared to cross the boundaries, to make a point.

This year marks their 30th anniversary. Or shall we just say that Mambo is now 30 – gosh, it’s even younger than I am! And to commemorate this milestone – I mean you’re turning the big 3-0 so that definitely IS a milestone in my books! – there’s an exhibition over at the Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia at Federation Square. When you enter the exhibition space, you’re greeted with a row of amazingly designed surfboards, the quirky characters on display, t-shirts that represents the brand to a tee and so much more art that will amaze you.

You need to turn around the corner and enter a room filled with wall to wall of black and white illustrations, much like entering a comic book space. There’s more amazing art-work as you enter yet another space within that space.
