“How the west was won”
My father is from Killala, a small village just outside Ballina. I’ve visited the town throughout my life, always enjoying the people and area.
So returning to paint a mural was a big thing for me. I have been given the theme “The Past” and feel very strongly that the land is the centre of who we are and who we will be.
I wanted to portray a sense of contentment of the farmer. They will be the centre of our environmental future. And have always been part of change and progress.
Canvaz also collaborated with local historian Terry Reilly and the residents of St Augustine’s Community Nursing Unit and the Jackie Clarke Collection on the theme of the Past to create a community street art wall.
