Mi­ami artist’s giant trib­ute to re­silience

Great Southern Herald - - News - Jessica Cuth­bert

The de­sign on the fi­nal mu­ral in the PUB­LIC Silo Trail is tak­ing shape and the pub­lic are lov­ing it.

The Pin­grup si­los be­gan their trans­for­ma­tion last week as Mi­ami-based artist Evoca1 be­gan his sketch.

The Do­mini­can-born mu­ral­ist is one of Amer­ica’s lead­ing street artists and last year cre­ated West­ern Aus­tralia’s Boy on the Red Bike in met­ro­pol­i­tan Perth for the Paint Subi mu­ral pro­ject.

Last week, how­ever he turned his hand to one of his big­gest can­vases yet in the South West town of Pin­grup.

Evoca1 said he was hon­oured to have been in­vited back to West­ern Aus­tralia to cre­ate the fi­nal mu­ral in the PUB­LIC Silo Trail in Pin­grup.

"The in­spi­ra­tion in this re­gional com­mu­nity is abun­dant, es­pe­cially read­ing about the peo­ple them­selves, who so proudly con­tinue gen­er­a­tions of re­silience in farm­ing,” he said.

“This PUB­LIC Silo Trail will surely leave a large foot­print in the his­tory and fu­ture of such com­mu­ni­ties and it is truly ex­cit­ing to be a part of it.”

Over the last few days dodg­ing rain, hail and shine, the tal­ented artist has cre­ated a horse and rider de­sign on the first mu­ral, and a man hold­ing some lambs on the sec­ond silo, be­gin­ning the third de­sign this week.

The horse and rider, and man hold­ing sheep de­signs are sketched and painted in.
