Smug starts Horsham silo project

Artist 'Smug' has started painting a giant mural as a tribute to former Wotjobaluk Aboriginal warrior Yanggendyinanyuk on a Horsham silo in Hazel Street. 

Yanggendyinanyuk is most noted for finding the Cooper-Duff children lost in the Wimmera scrub for nine days in 1864.

The acclaimed artist started the mural on Saturday. Horsham artist Tanisha Lovett will paint the front of the Horsham Soundshell stage at Sawyer Park.

"I anticipate the mural will take about two weeks to complete," he said.
"It's public art and people can come and enjoy it from the start and not just when it's finished."
