Have you noticed a wall, bridge or other structure that could do with a bit of a freshen up?

Well Warrnambool artist Jimmi Buscombe and his wife Sheridan have just the idea to make it a reality.

The pair are collaborating on an art project as part of the state government’s Pick My Project initiative to spruce up south-west sites.

“We are on the hunt for bland, bleak, boring and downright ugly sites in Warrnambool and surrounding towns,” Buscombe said.

Buscombe wants to create more of his amazing artworks, similar to the works he has completed in Warrnambool’s laneways.

His latest piece, in collaboration with Alara, was of Warrnambool’s famed penguins being threatened by a fox. It is on show at the rear of Fishtales Cafe, in Little Liebig Lane. Site suggestions can be made by posting the address of the proposed location with a photo (if possible) via Buscombe’s Facebook or Instagram pages. Just search for Jimmi Buscombe – Artist or email him at jimmibuscombe@gmail.com for more information.
