Patchewollock Silo Art

Patchewollock is the fourth silo in the Australian Silo Art Trail and the second to be painted in the Wimmera-Mallee in Victoria. It’s always been one of my favourite silos as I love the rich colours in this one and the story behind it also.

The Patchewollock Silo was painted by a Brisbane artist by the name of Fintan Magee.  For inspiration for his silo mural and to get to the know the people of the area, Fintan booked a room at the local pub so he could mix among the local community.

It wasn’t long before he met the subject for the Patchewollock Silos. A hard working lanky local by the name of Nick “Noodle” Hulland who exemplified the no-nonsence, hardworking spirit of the region.

This twin silo was built in 1939 and was transformed in late 2016 and now portrays the classic Aussie farmer wearing a blue “flanny” shirt.
