The amazing silo art adding color to the local landscape
These magnificent murals pay tribute to history, culture, and the environment
Australia's amazing Silo Art Trail brings together the work of some of the country's most celebrated street artists. The difference is that the artwork appears as huge murals on giant grain silos set in isolated rural countryside, much of it decimated by drought. The idea has gained popularity in struggling small-town communities as a way of attracting visitors to areas set well off the tourism trail, and silo art can be admired in many parts of the country. But artists across the world have always regarded silos as an enticing blank canvas, and examples of this extraordinary artistry can be appreciated in many countries around the globe.
