MURAL The early Days
LOCATION – Café Aga, 219 Commercial Rd, Yarram VIC 3971 (inside the Cafe)
WHY WE BECAME INVOLVED “When we saw the murals around Yarram and were getting to open our new business, we just were so keen to have a Heesco mural in our small back room that features our famous Aga stove. I talked it over with Wayne Tindall and together we kicked around a few design ideas.”
Mel Andrews – Owner Café Aga
THE MURAL DESIGN –“I initially discussed a number of ideas with Mel and her friend Kerry Anderson. They wanted an old-fashioned feel that suited the old Aga stove in the room that was to be painted. I suggested that we incorporate the Aga stove in the design, painting old pots and pans hanging above it, just the way it used to be. I then created an iconic image of a classic mum and daughter cooking at a table with a view of Wilsons Prom out the window…and Heesco did his magic. ” Wayne Tindall – Artist/film maker
