Kiama muralist puts his stamp on showground horse stables

Public art continues to emerge and develop across Kiama, with the addition of a large-scale mural on the Kiama Showground horse stables.

Fittingly, the mural created by renowned artist Kane Trait Horspool, features a horse on the southern facing wall of the complex. 

Kiama Showground horse stables mural - ‘The horse has bolted’.

Horspool said he created the artwork, named ‘The horse has bolted’, to add to the vibrancy of the Kiama art community and to inspire young up-and-coming artists.

“The mural is a visual adaptation of my interpretation of the area’s agricultural history,” he said.

“The artwork depicts a horse breaking away from its lead and several hands working together to control the horse.”

The work was carried out using acrylic and aerosol paint and was designed specifically for the area, by Horspool.
