#SiloArtTrail The township of Merriwa is in NSW and is situated on the Golden Highway, midway between Newcastle and Dubbo. It is an ideal place for a stopover and is centrally positioned between Dubbo, Newcastle, Tamworth and Bathurst.
The mural depicts an image of sheep wearing red socks in a canola field. International art management company Authority Creative represented Melbourne born artist David Lee Pereira, in his first ever silo mural creation. After visiting Merriwa and meeting with Upper Hunter Shire Council and members of the Merriwa community including - and perhaps most importantly - the school kids, David was inspired to create an artwork that was distinctive of the place, unique to the site and represented something the community would be proud of.
The Merriwa Silos are the 29th silos to be included in the Australian Silo Art Trail Collection and were completed 23rd April 2019. #RegionalNSW
