Artbox / Yorke Peninsula Council, Tower Art Tourism Campaign 2021
In collaboration with Mike Makatron, Artbox successfully pitched to complete 2 of 4 murals for the 670m2 water towers located on the Southern Yorke Peninsula Water Tower Mural Trail.
Both mural projects involved multiple rounds of in-depth consultation with the Edithburg and Stansbury communities within the Yorke Peninsula Shire. Over a period of six months, multiple rounds of community consultation occurred within each town to ensure the concept and designs reflected the character and individuality of each community. Residents were encouraged to have their say and get involved by attending planned townhall meetings, on-street consultations and providing written feedback. The 62-kilometre self-drive mural trail starts at Port Vincent to Stansbury, then onto Yorketown, before heading back to the coast to Edithburgh and Coobowie in South Australia.
The Edithburgh Tower Mural highlights the natural beauty and striking underwater views of Edithburgh Jetty. The vibrant colours depict Edithburgh’s underwater and natural attractions with marine species including Leafy Sea Dragon, Cuttlefish and Striped Pyjama Squid; a stunning sunrise with local birdlife in flight, and the iconic Troubridge Island Lighthouse.
Funded by the AusTrade Bushfire Recovery Grant, in collaboration with Edithburgh Progress Association, Yorke Peninsula Council, Yorke Peninsula Tourism and SA Water.
The Stansbury Mural celebrates the notable fauna and natural landscape near and around Stansbury. Featuring the distinctive coastline of Oyster Bay, the design illustrates the Norfolk Island Pines, Stansbury Jetty, the iconic Blue Swimmer crab, ribbon seaweed, oysters, pelicans, and dolphins.
