Guido van Helten transforms wheat silos into giant artwork

Internationally renowned Australian artist Guido van Helten spent three weeks working on this massive mural on some defunct wheat silos in Brim, a tiny, drought-stricken town in western Victoria. The 30-meter high black and white portrait is based on individuals from the area, but the identities of the four people depicted on the concrete walls have been kept secret so the works instead represent the general spirit of the community.

Visitors have come from different parts of Australia to see the mural, and it has drawn interest from as far as London, according to The Age. The giant artwork is made possible thanks to the support from Regional Arts Victoria, the Yarriambiack Shire Council, Brim Active Community Group and LoopColors Australia.
