Camperdown Memorial Rest Park (North) Art, Newtown

Camperdown Park, Newtown – Street Art, Sydney – Artist; Ox King


Ox King’s 2018 Newtown Mural ‘Wyrd Sisters’ is a part of Sydney Inner West Council’s Perfect Match initiative

“Wyrd Sisters is a painting inspired by Camperdown Park and the life in the area. It’s a reflection on the way people live outside there among the trees, and animals that pass through the Park over long periods of time. Locals lying in the sun for hours, playing with animals, or meeting in the dead of night for secret communes”

“The characters in the mural reference the three witches from Macbeth. They celebrate and symbolise the weirdness of the area.
They tend the park with strange rituals while guarded by the domestic animals of this land, namely a good doggo”

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
