Amok Island – New Mural in Ravensthorpe, Western Australia

Dutch artist Amok Island recently completed one of Australia’s largest murals, spanning 25m high x 162m long, on three grain silos in Ravensthorpe, Western Australia. The mural entitled ‘Six stages of Banksia baxteri’ took 31 days to paint and each side of a silo depicts the different stages of the flowering cycle of this iconic Australian Banksia flower, only found in this area of Western Australia. From flower buds, to full bloom; to seedpods developing, drying out and opening. The animals portrayed in the mural are the species’ main pollinators; the Honey Possum and New Holland Honey eater.

The artwork encircles the three silo’s infinitely; the final silo marks the beginning once again, of the first, making a connection with the cycle of the seasons and grain farming processes the area is known for.

Commissioned by FORM and CBH Group.
