A-maze-ing street art
The Lake Pertobe maze is looking better than ever thanks to four renowned street artists and a cohort of community helpers.
Former Warrnambool resident Scottie “Bonsai” Neoh was flanked by fellow professionals Hiroyasu “TwoOne” Tsuri, David “Ghostpatrol” Booth and Jun Inoue for a three-day workshop to share their skills and expertise with aspiring mural artists.
The workshops culminated in the repainting of the iconic maze with children also invited to grab a spray can and add some colour.
