Australian Silo Art Trail, Adnate

Sheep Hills Silo

When you round the corner in Sheep Hill and see the silos for the first time, you are absolutely blown away by the colours and the sheer spender of this silo. Sheep Hills is the 5th silo in the Australian Silo art trail and the 3rd in the Wimmera-Mallee of Victoria.
Adnate, who is a Melbourne based artist, has spent much of his carer telling the stories of Indigenous people and their native lands by painting wonderful murals of them through out Australia. 
To get inspiration for this mural, Adnate spent time among the Barengi Gaijin Land Council in north-west Victoria, building friendships and getting to know the people better.
Adnate mural is of a Wergaia Elder named Uncle Ron Marks, along with a Wotjobaluk Elder, Aunty Regina Hood. They both stand beside two young children, Savannah Marks and Curtly McDonald.
Conceived over four weeks in late 2016, Adnate wanted to shine the spotlight on the areas young Indigenous people, but he also wanted to portray their strong ancestral connection that they share with the elders in their communities.
