Art by a Mean Fish

5 October, 2011

Old Bus Depot Markets - Mean Fish DesignLong time market goers would know Mean Fish Design well. Having started at our markets the very first year we were open, they traded here for around 12 years then took a well earned break. After firmly establishing themselves in Canberra, and indeed throughout Australia, Mean Fish Design has always impressed with a large range of high quality original artworks and signature resin finished products.

Husband and wife team, Matthew and Louise Judd, are now back at the markets after downsizing and reinventing the business, and are feeling reinvigorated with a new range of original art on canvas inspired by the Graphic novels and Comics of the 1950′s, and Pop Art of the 1960′s. “We do this because we love it,” said Matthew. “After Louise and I had our two kids, we’ve fallen in love with our business again once the stress and pressure was taken out of it via downsizing.” Mean Fish Design is at the markets every Sunday with original art on canvas, clocks, mirrors, name plaques and decorative wall art. And their products are just as popular as they were at the markets 17 years ago!
