Goorambat Silo Art Revisited & The Murals of Jimmy Dvate

During the recent Benalla Wall to Wall Festival, artist Jimmy Dvate began an addition to his wonderful work of a Barking Owl and local scenery already on the Goorambat Silo Art (completed in 2018), which is part of the Benalla Silo Art Trail. This time he has painted three huge Clydesdale Horses on the pub side of the silos. The mural is impressive in its scale and detail – great work!

Over the years Clydesdale horses have been an important part of farming in the Goorambat region and the new mural features a working team of this big beasts. Two are actually based on a pair bred in Goorambat by the Lavereen Stud (founded in 1920) – Clement (left) and Banjo (right). The middle horse is Samuel from the Coolibah Ridge Clydesdales Stud (who own Lavereen Clement and Banjo). The mural is based on a photo by Bob Britcher, which was taken at an event in Queensland for the 100th celebration of the Clydesdale Horse in Australia.

Whilst in the region I also could not miss revisiting his work on the Rochester Silo Art. The Squirrel Glider and Azure Kingfisher on the Campaspe River is a beauty!

The photo realistic art of Jimmy Dvate is impressive to say the least! You can find his mural work on walls in Benalla too as part of past Wall to Wall Festivals.
