PATCHEWOLLOCK SILO ART


The GrainCorp Silos at Patchewollock were the fourth set of silos to join the Australian Silo Art Trail Collection and the second to be painted in the Wimmera-Mallee region of Victoria.


They were 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-nonsense, hardworking spirit of the region.


This twin silos were built in 1939 and was transformed in late 2016.

Another beautiful Silo …. Fills my heart with joy 🎶
