Atomic Saloon

Commissioned by Spiegelworld for the opening of Atomic Saloon Show, the painting depicts a disco in a wild west saloon with characters including the vintage Fremont Street neon signs Vegas Vic and Vegas Vickie. Spiegelworld icons including the kraken, penguin, fiddle playing monkey and aliens are also represented. Legendary New York DJ David Mancuso can be seen working the turntable.

Melbourne artist Mark Ogge lives and works in an old church in Clunes, in country Victoria. He was the first artist commissioned by Spiegelworld, creating an entrance archway mural in 2006. Mark has long been fascinated by the iconography of the circus and fairground, exploring the dichotomy between enchantment and disillusionment.
