In November 2017, Western Australian artists Mel McVee, Brenton See, Chris Nixon and Darren Hutchens along with Karim Jabbari from Tunisia descended on the Wheatbelt town of Katanning, located 277km southeast of Perth. Their mission: to transform Western Power electrical transformer boxes at the four Katanning schools and paint large scale murals on walls throughout town.
Seven days, five murals and seven transformer boxes later plus a series of youth workshops, the job was done. The colour and variety of the styles show how even the humblest wall or object can be transformed by art.
Take a walk through town and you will come across the many walls and transformer boxes that were painted as part of this project.
