The Outback - part 7

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 17 August 2017 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

Cars in the landscape are part of iconic images of the Australia Outback and it is not surprising that artists have used vehicles and car wrecks as a canvas. I found this vibrant wreck of a VW Beetle in the town of Silverton.

Silverton and its Hotel often feature in film and TV productions. Silverton (population about 50) retains its character as a ghost town but in recent years has also become a haven for a number of artists who have studios in the town.

Love the old truck. Does everyone add to it as they go by? And, I do wonder what became of the biker. Hope the dingoes didn't get him!

Quite a vibrant find in this Beetle with its color streaks and splats!! Glad to hear that the town is experiencing a renaissance with local artists.

What a paint job! Just needs a good wax and a polish and she's ready to go again!

I love all of the color. Looks like it has been painted many times! It really stands out against the background! Wonderful point of view!
