This large whale mural was designed to create a connection between earth, the sky and the wind and waves.
The 2017 Festival of the Wind mural is a holds a prominent position in Andrew Street, on the side of Kung Foo Noodles, next to a large car parking area.
Artist Esti Nagy spent 80 hours over 8 days working on this project. There was plenty of community involvement with people spending hours making sure all the bumps and cracks were covered.

The Festival of the Wind was a biannual festival held in Esperance for over two decades. The festival included live music, art projects, the taste of Esperance, featuring locally grown foods from the Esperance region, and Esperance Odyssey, which explores the hidden treasures of the town. The Festival of the Wind committee made the difficult decision to close their doors in 2018.
