Ox King


OX King is a Sydney-based, UK born Painter and Illustrator working between his studio and Sydney streets. Ox King employs psychedelic pop colours to contrast dark humour and a combination of ambiguous text and imagery to explore addiction, junk food and advertising

Works by Ox King commissioned as part of the Inner West Council’s Perfect Match Street Art program can be found throughout Newtown. Ox King’s Camperdown Memorial Rest Park Mural ‘Wyrd Sisters’ celebrates the weirdness of the area and references Macbeth’s three witches, while Lennox Street’s 2016 work ‘Promise’ highlights famed Newtown resident Eliza Emily Donnithorne who is buried down the road at St Stephen’s Church and said to be the inspiration for Charles Dickens’ Mrs Havisham

Ox King’s and Tim Phibs’ Holt Street Mural centres on the dual challenges posed by climate change and the rising price of land facing young people across Australia

You can find Ox King’s works on our Newtown (North) Self-Guided Walk and Newtown (South) Self-Guided Walk – see here for more , Newtown sitesNewtown Street Art
