Native-inspired street chalk art is project done and dusted

Check out this incredible artwork created by local young people over the school holidays!

Award-winning artist Anton Pulverenti was brought to Forbes by Forbes Shire Council, with thanks also to Evolution Mining, to run holiday art workshops resulting in this three-dimensional street art.

The workshops were thrown open to local 12 to 18-year-olds, who worked on two major pieces in the laneway between Anytime Fitness and St Vincent de Paul off Rankin Street.

Both artworks were inspired by the native species of goanna. 

The creature who looks like he is crawling out of the ground was created out of chalk and has now been coated with an acrylic compound so the community will have it for about a year.

The mural of the goanna smashing its way out of the wall nearby was created using acrylic paint and Mr Pulverenti estimates it will last for several years in the more sheltered position.
