SILO art at Patchewollock is now complete and work will start on another location next month.
Yarriambiack Shire’s Silo Art Trail will include a 200-kilometre trail of painted GrainCorp silos.
Yarriambiack chief executive Ray Campling said internationally renowned artist Adnate would paint the next silo at Sheep Hills.
He said painting would have an indigenous theme and would start on November 14.
The Silo Art Trail will include murals at Brim, Rupanyup, Sheep Hills, Rosebery, Lascelles and Patchewollock.
Artist Fintan Magee finished painting silos at Patchewollock earlier this week.
The work features a portrait of Patchewollock farmer Nick Hulland.
Mr Hulland, 42, a reserved wheat and sheep farmer, said he was embarrassed.
He said he told artist Fintan Magee he hoped he was using water paint so it would wash off.
He said he allowed himself to be talked into it, because street art might be a life saver for his beloved town.
"Our little town is slowly dying so we've got to do what we can to keep it going," he said.
The school closed in 2006 and the population has declined.
Its two shops closed, although one re-opened and is community-run.
The wheat silos have been decommissioned.
Mr Hulland said the past two or three farming seasons had been tough due to drought.
Magee said Mr Hulland was judged slim enough to fit on the two narrow silos and had he had a classic farmer look.
The mural also depicts a tree dying and new growth to represent the bush life cycle.
Magee said the silos project was about making art more accessible.
“It’s bringing art out of the galleries and making it part of people's everyday lives,” he said.
Mr Hulland said if the Patchewollock mural promoted the little town in any way, that was good.
Tempy’s Stephen May said he drove to Patchewollock after seeing the mural on Facebook.
"I like it a lot," he said.
"It describes living in the bush, the chequered shirt, country way of living very well.
“I reckon it is a good idea to have it.
“Silos rarely get used these days, so instead of demolishing them you can turn them into art."
