Street artist Rone has returned to his home city of Geelong to transform the cement silos in Fyansford, just a short drive out of Geelong, into an amazing visual masterpiece.

Well known for his large-scale street-art installations that merge beauty and decay, the world artist was commissioned by Gen Fyansford developers with the hope that it will help bolster the street appeal of the derelict site and create a landmark for the people of Geelong and Fryansford.

The three portraits of local Australians took about one month to paint. The works where completed in December 2017 and a viewing platform (a gated pathway) installed, as there is no access to inside the perimeter of the fence.

From here you get the best vantage point and also a chance to read information about each portrait of local individuals, Corinna Eccles, Cor Horsten and Kelly Cartwright.

Don't get confused with the arrow pointing to the viewing platform like we did. Just follow up the gravel path to the left and the mesh gated fence will lead you to the viewing platform for the best views, not only of the artwork but of Greater Geelong.

Geelong's always been an important place to me and it's always nice to come back to where you grew up to do something,'' Rone said. "Nowhere else in the world has something quite like this."

These silo artworks seem to be piping up all over the place. It would be worth a road rip to see them all.
