On the trail..



On our trip into the country last week we passed through Northam, another small country town in the Avon Valley as I was really keen to take some shots of the work by large-scale artists Phlegm and Hense. A CBH grain receival point, these 36mt tall silos would have been a challenge with both artists having an extended stay in the country :) The bold, bright colours used by USA artist Hense above depicting the agricultural area around the wheat-belt, seen a few posts back, and the astoundingly detailed work (so worth looking closer) of English artist Phlegm inspired by hot-air ballooning that the area is famous for. A CBH partnered with FORM project. FORM's long-term goal is 'to create an 'art trail', where people from the city could take a day's drive to various towns in the Wheatbelt and see some internationally-renowned artists' works'.. I'm on the trail already :) Happy Monday, take care and stay safe..

  9. Love them both but particularly the Phlegm work, Grace!
    Someone gave me a card from a small Perth company, Rubbergob. I love it and have to check out their site!

  10. Oh how I wish I could discover who owns some of our ugly gray silos so I could send them photos of these wonderfully painted buildings. They are probably the most unique murals I have seen! Such gifted artists!!

  14. I've seen a lot of grain elevators around the Midwest but never anything like this. The top image is dizzying. Kansas could use some brightening.

  21. I'm not afraid of heights, but this is a project I don't think I'd want to take on!

  22. Wow, this is pretty amazing work on a surface that can't be very easy to work with. These artists are very talented and adventurous too!

  23. I have a photo collection of grain silos and elevators from the area where I live, but none are painted like these. Thry have graffiti instead. I'd love to start a new trend.
