Callum Preston, a sucker for nostalgia, will recreate an operational, life-size milk bar. Like any milk bar, Preston’s is filled with the usual suspects - magazines, chocolate bars, soft drinks - but take a closer look and you’ll see that each one is completely handmade from timber and hand- illustrated by Preston himself. Stationed at the Benalla Art Gallery, MILK BAR is set to be an immersive experience which will transform the spectacular main room of the Gallery.

Not to be outdone, Dvate and will paint a giant murals on the side of a silo just outside of Benalla at Goorambat – the Festival’s first ever satellite site. Australia’s most revered contemporary street artists, Anthony Lister will deploy temporary, inflatable sculptures around the town.

Artistic Director, Shaun Hossack says “This is by far the best festival we have curated yet and visitors are in for a real surprise with some of the works that will be on display. I am incredibly excited to have so many pioneering artists from Kuala Lumpur, New York, the Bay Area, as well as across the country all in one place for the Wall to Wall Festival.

“It is also great exposure for local artists to be painting alongside some of the world’s best and we are proud to work alongside many talented local artists from the Benalla region.”

George Rose, one of the artists at this year’s Festival. said "Women artists right now are leading the mural art game. You just need to visit Benalla to witness the changing of the guard. Lady bosses are here to stay."

Wall to Wall Festival is supported by Creative Victoria, Visit Victoria and Benalla Rural City Council.
