Guido Paints Portland Silos
Williwa Street, Portland, NSW, 2847, Australia
29th March 2018 to 29th April 2018
Australian-born, internationally renowned visual artist, Guido van Helten has been commissioned to paint a large-scale mural on the eight-bin silos that dominate the local landscape. Commissioned by AWJ Civil as an introductory aspect at The Foundations, a new development, van Helten will apply his unique process of community engagement, photography and mural painting to the town with a rich history and unique mix of art and industry. From Brim to Coonalpyn and now to Portland: van Helten will transform the mid-century cement silos of the town and in turn bring renewed interest to the heritage location. Community members and tourists alike are welcome to the site as the artist works during April 2018 to transform the 20 metres high silos.
