Presgrave Place: An Artists Laneway

There is an historical covered laneway off Little Bourke St, called Howey Place and running from Howey is Presgrave Place. Along the left hand side of Presgrave  are many pieces of street art in the form of installations, paste-ups, stickers and framed original drawing and paintings. I visit every few days to see what has been newly added to the walls. Soon after my first visit to the Lane, much of the art was destroyed or stolen but it did not take very long for the artists to replace or put up new pieces. I have actually found many of these artists in other laneways around Melbourne and have slowly started to identify their work/style.
