Snowtown Water Tower Art – South Australia

This wonderful mural was painted by renowned mural artist Joel Van Moore — better known as ‘Vans the Omega’. He was also assisted by Sam Brooks who was one of the Gulargambone street artist that did a make over of their town in 2018.

The Snowtown disused water tower near the town’s centre now depicts the bright faces of local volunteers and sports stars, including the games record holder of Blyth Snowtown Football Club, Simon McCormack.

One of the volunteers is local Country Fire Service volunteer of more than 25 years John Hansen. He features prominently on the tower and is the image that faces the road. The other face is Snowtown ambulance volunteer Jenny Cox.

The mural used more than 120 litres of paint and about 300 spray-cans and was completed in April 2018.
