Right now, RONE is painting his latest work. a 25-square metre mural in the Paper Mill precinct of his home town, Geelong.
The stunning mural is set within the cellar doors of Provenance Wines, who have set up shop several years ago in the heritage-listed precinct—one of the last remaining paper mill buildings originally built in the 1870s.
Along with Provenance Wines, Belinda White, the Studio Director of Bells Fine Art, has played an integral role in seeing RONE returning to his home town to paint the mural.
“RONE’s artwork is perfectly suited to the architecture of this 140-year-old building, the six-metre pitch in the cedar-lined ceiling created the perfect canvas for his expansive work.
“His delicate and sensitive interpretation of female muses drew us to his style, his ability to draw the viewer in and create a sense of peace and contentment after a year of confusion and uncertainty, was a major driver.
“This muse depicts everything we have been missing this year, and leaves us with a sense of strength and resilience,” said White.
The Mural is due for completion by the end of tomorrow, Thursday 17 December, and if you book in right now, you may just be lucky enough to see RONE working his magic.
