Silo Art Trail: Rupanyup complete | Photos

INTERNATIONAL street artist Julia Volchkova and assistant Georgia Goodie have left a colourful mark on Rupanyup. 

The pair have found canvasses in school walls, an old council building and a burnt down house.

After weeks of painting, Ms Volchkova set down her brushes and retired the apple-picker on Tuesday, completing the silo.

Yarriambiack mayor Graeme Massey said the latest addition in the Silo Art Trail was a fantastic addition to existing works at Patchewollock, Brim and Sheep Hills. 

“I’d go so far to say the trail is one of the most unique features in the world, no one has a silo trail like us,” he said.

“It looks great, the silo project is a massive boom for tourism in Western Victoria, not just Yarriambiack.”

Cr Massey said the latest edition stands above Rupanyup, depicting a Yarriambiack netballer and footballer.

“It’s black and white, with shades of grey – really it’s quite striking,” he said.

Cr Massey said the shire appreciate the artists who are willing to cross the world for a unique canvas. 

He also thanked grain companies for providing the silos and allowing them to be painted.
