More Silo Art

Silo Art projects are popping up around rural Australia as many towns embrace the potential of these huge blank canvases. Here’s a couple more that we recently visited in northern Victoria. 

 Rochester Silo Art

The Rochester silo art is by Melbourne based street artist Jimmy Dvate and were finished in July 2018. They depict a Squirrel Glider and an Azure Kingfisher alongside the Campaspe River that runs through Rochester. 

Tungamah Silo Art

These silos are at Tungamah and were one of the first silos to be painted in northern Victoria. They depict the Kookaburra and a pair of dancing Brolgas and were painted by Western Australian artist Sobrane.

  1. I recognised the name Dvate. We have interacted about him before. I particularly like his 2018 silo work. https://highriser.blogspot.com/2018/04/monday-mural_9.html

  4. They are magnificent. I think building art like that is one of the wonderful things happening to our cities (and obviously elsewhere).

  5. These are fantastic. i like street art and now admire rural art. Makes the children round here decorating round bales look a little childish.

  8. I love the silo art, so much talent. We are thinking of doing the silo art trail later this year. We saw a few last year on our travels. Thanks for sharing.
