RAINBOW OF COLOUR AND MOVEMENT: Renowned Australian artist Daniel Butterworth is pictured with a large mural he is painting on the façade of Belinda Eckermann’s Turbo Gallery in Rainbow.
Butterworth has his AFL Series on exhibition at the gallery from July 6 to August 4.
Mrs Eckermann said she had remembered Butterworth from university and, while admiring his work, had made contact through social media.
“It’s great to be able to showcase how art and sport can mix. I said to Dan as a joke one day that I had a big wall out the front that needed a mural. We made a deal and now he’s painting my boys,” she said.

The mural features Jamie and Dustin Eckermann in action for Jeparit-Rainbow football team. Butterworth’s exhibition taps into his desire to capture the speed and movement so the players appear to ‘almost run on the surface’.
