Commercial artist Neil Welsh is one of many artists in the town of Robe, in South Australia.
Neil has spent much of his life doing the carnival circuit around Australia, during which time he saw and experienced pretty much every part of Australia that's worth seeing ...and then some!
He has a passion for story telling and loves to express the same colourful side of story telling in much of his art. The interactive Art Map of Robe is a great example and is only the tip of the iceberg. In fact, he is also the owner of an ice cream shop in the coastal tourist town where the walls are covered in Neil's creations, as well as being the home of the original Art Map. The shop has a wonderful atmosphere which as a whole is also a reflection of the person that Neil is and the culmination of experiences throughout his life.
