The small town of Wirrabara has painted itself onto the map with an amazing new silo artwork.

Painted on a 28-metre silo, the artwork was finished just yesterday by Australian artist Smug, aka Sam Bates, who spent three weeks in a boom lift to perfect his creation.

Known to elaborate his painting to the last detail, Smug paints pieces that express realistic images. Using natural colours, he captured the beauty of Wirrabara and the Australian country.

It was the first silo project for Smug, who was selected by the locals as the silo’s artist.

The project has seen the town added to the Silo Art Trail, and locals are hoping to attract plenty of visitors and boost the economy of the district.

So if you’re driving through make sure you go check out the mural and the gorgeous town of Wirrabara.
