"Earlier this year Curlewis-born street artist Tyrone ‘Rone’ Wright painted a 30m high silo in Lascelles in the Mallee, featuring fourth-generation farmers Geoff and Merrilyn Horman. The silo was the fifth of six being painted on a 200km outdoor art trail.
Rone returns to Geelong after establishing himself as one of the world’s top talents, following a series of high-profile installations in cities such as London and New York, and also having work acquisitioned by the National Gallery of Australia and commissioned by the National Gallery of Victoria".

"Rone, a former Curlewis resident, returns to Geelong after installations in London and New York. He created a large-scale piece at North Geelong’s Powerhouse building in 2014, and painted a 30-metre high silo in Lascelles in the Mallee earlier this year".

"AFTER a string of high-profile art installations around the world, renowned Geelong-born street artist Tyrone ‘Rone’ Wright is back home transforming the Fyansford cement silos.
Rone, a former Curlewis resident and East Geelong Technical School student, started the project, covering three unused silos, on Monday
Tamara McDonald, Geelong Advertiser, December 8, 2017
"World-renowned street artist Rone has returned to his home city of Geelong to transform the Geelong cement silos overlooking Fyansford into an incredible work of urban art. Known for his large-scale street-art installations that merge beauty and decay – with his most recent series of works shown in cities around the world, such as New York and London – the artist was commissioned by Gen Fyansford developers with the hope that it will help bolster the visual appeal of the site in the state of Victoria, Australia and create a landmark of sorts for the town".
