The PUBLIC Silo Trail seeks to shine a light on the state’s regions and show how unique and important our regional towns are to who we are as Western Australians. Over the past three years, it has put regional Western Australia on the map, bringing world-class murals to grain silos, public walls and transformer boxes across the state, with artwork so far from Phlegm, Kyle Hughes-Odgers, HENSE and Amok Island.
Now, in Albany, Brooklyn-based street art duo Yok & Sheryo have completed the fourth silo mural in the PUBLIC Silo Trail series. The mural features a hybrid seahorse, part Ruby, part Leafy, that stands high over the sound in red, grey, and gold.
Also. as part of the PUBLIC Silo Trail, a series of murals were painted by Western Australian artists Glen Hegedus, Rachelle Dusting, Andrew Frazer, Nick Zafir and Helen Ansell on Western Power transformer boxes throughout the city’s CBD, and engagement workshops were facilitated with the local youth from Open Access Youth Arts. Watch the video of these works below, or click here.
While this project is yet to be launched as a fully-fledged trail, we have already witnessed its impact on the towns it has visited. We can’t wait to announce the final silos in the trail in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.
The PUBLIC Silo Trail is a partnership between FORM, CBH Group and Western Power and is supported by a grant from the Australian Government through the Building Better Regions Fund and Lotterywest. FORM is grateful to have the support of the City of Albany on this project.
