Two years have passed since my last trip to Melbourne, and my first post on Hosier Lane street art. On this visit I had the time to wander many of Melbourne’s street art galleries and capture the best to share with you here.
A year in Melbourne street art
Immigration, gay marriage and the death of AC/DC rocker Malcolm Young are all hot topics of Melbourne street this year. My favourites are the Peter Drew “Aussie” paste up, which questions what makes a real Australian, and the passionate kiss between Disney princesses by Stampz.
Featured artwork includes pieces by prolific artists Abyss 607, The 169 and Sunfigo whose work can be viewed all over the city’s laneways. There are also a variety of mediums including paint, paste-ups, plastic twine and stenciling. As always, I have tried to identify as many of the artists as possible. If you have a correction or information about an uncredited piece, please don’t hesitate to drop it in the comments below.
