If you’ve been around Adelaide’s city streets, you’d be well familiar with the works of Vans the Omega. The talented multidisciplinary artist has been practicing in mural art, letterforms and photography for nearly two decades. There are plenty of his stunning works in the CBD’s west end, but this one at the rear of Her Majesty’s Theatre is my personal fave:
He’s responsible for many famous large murals around Adelaide, and he has now set his sights further afield, working on an even larger scale. Collaborating with another local artist, Sam Brookes, the pair are taking on the mammoth task of painting a decommissioned water tower in Snowtown.

The snowtown project will be wrapped up this week and I’m looking forward to getting the final photos together. Thanks to all the locals for the support and encouragement through the extreme weather this last week. Also massive thanks to my assistant @sambrooksartist for the hard work #vanstheomega #ironlak #sugarartistsacrylic #snowtown #streetartnews
Pretty good likeness don’t you think??John Hansen (pictured) dedicated over 25 years to his local CFS. >>> Check out…
The silo used to refill the water supplies of the steam trains passing through the rural farm town, but is now having new life breathed into it by the artist duo. Work is quickly progressing (even through there was a massive storm!), so you’ll want to follow Vans the Omega on Facebook and Instagram today to be among the first to witness the completed mural.
