Splash of colour for landmark
AN artist in resident program was the catalyst to turning a Falls Creek eyesore into a masterpiece over the summer
International street artist, TWOONE (Hiroyasu Tsuri) pictured above, turned the well-known landmark best known as the brown water tank into a work of art.
Through a successful crowd funding initiative, the work was unveiled to the public in early March.
“Twoone’s impressive work on the once brown water supply storage tank will have a big impact on everyone who skis, rides or walks past,” Resort management board member Lindy Allen said.
“This large-scale Bogong Moth reminds us that we share our environment with one of nature’s most mysterious creatures and we also share a responsibility to preserve it for future generations.”
The artist himself said the Bogong moth was a stand out.
“The visual and textural nature made it a fantastic piece to work on,” Hiroyasu said.
“The name ‘Big Fella’ could not be better suited.
“It is the indigenous meaning of Bogong and holds the village’s ‘water’ life line.”
