PUBLIC Silo Trail: Northam

Landmarks and Buildings

Thirty eight metres high, ten in a row, in the middle of a fully working CBH Group receival site.

In April 2015 London artist Phlegm and Atlanta native HENSE gathered their paint tins, aerosols, rollers and brushes and struck out for a two week residency at Northam, the heritage town on the banks of the Avon River.

Across four huge silos, Phlegm perched on the extended arm of a boom lift and using brushes strapped to a long pole, rendered his signature whimsical characters in fantastical transportation devices. HENSE, working simultaneously across an equal number of silos, produced his customary abstract patterns in explosive blocks of fluoro colour. This is a truly amazing sight on the landscape of the Western Australian Wheatbelt.

Northam is a small country town about an hour’s drive east of Perth, in Western Australia’s Wheatbelt.
