In August 2016 acclaimed Fremantle-based artist Amok Island created PUBLIC Art in Ravensthorpe’s Six Stages of Banksia baxteri, a 25 metre high wildflower inspired mural painted across three CBH Group silos in Ravensthorpe, Western Australia. The project, which entailed 31 days, 338 litres of paint and countless trips up and down the silos in a knuckle boom, was the second in a series of monumental mural artworks on grain silos delivered by FORM in partnership with CBH Group.
The mural joins silo artworks in Northam, Merredin, Newdegate, Pingrup and Albany. Ultimately the silos will form a large scale art trail for tourists and travellers to take through regional Western Australia.
To view the artwork take South Coast Highway into Raventhorpe and then turn onto Dance Street for the best viewing.
