MasterChef Australia and host Matt Preston films part of new series at Brim's silo art

The Silo Art Trail: BrimPatchewollock | Sheep Hills

COOKING TV show MasterChef paid a visit to Brim’s silo art on Wednesday to film at the base of the giant mural.

The Brim Silo Art Facebook group posted photos of the visit, which will contribute to a new series of the popular show next year.

MasterChef Australia host and food critic Matt Preston can been seen in the photos being filmed under a marquee.

“Amazing day MasterChef at Brim Silos. Who would have thought this would happen 12 months ago,” the group posted.

“Great to see what goes on behind the scenes.

“Looking forward to the new series later in the year.”

Member for Lowan Emma Kealy said it was a great achievement for the Brim Active Community group.

“This is so awesome! Who would ever predict art would bring MasterChef to Brim?!,” she posted on Facebook.

International street artist Guido van Helten painted the 30m by 30m scene on the decommissioned GrainCorp silos at the end of 2015.

The scene depicts four Brim residents – three men and one woman – and has attracted thousands of visitors to the small farming centre since it was finished in January last year.

Its success saw the creation of a silo art trail, which will add five new silo artworks to border the Brim silos. Patchewollock and Sheep Hills have already been completed, with Lascelles, Roseberry and Rupanyup to go. The trail will be completed this year.
