Hosier Lane – January 2016 Updates

After Xmas holidays came to an end earlier this year, I was back at work and spending lunchtimes checking out the CBD street art scene again. I have taken a number of shots in the last few months and thought I had better catch-up with posting them. As usual there were some fine pieces along the walls of Hosier and Rutledge Lanes. Highlights were the portraits and the abstracts…

Wrdsmth visits Melbourne

Wrdsmth is a LA based street artist with an interesting poetic style. Like Banksy he prefers to remain anonymous – though photos indicate that he is male. He visited Melbourne for the first time last year and after being impressed by the local street scene decided to leave his own mark, a series of clever and insightful words of wisdom pasted up and stencilled around the CBD, Fitzroy and St Kilda. I kept seeing them around town and thought I would photograph a few before they all disappeared.

Melbourne Laneways: P-stain Alley Pt2

There are so many good murals in this series of Alleys and Laneways I thought I would break the post into two parts.

Melbourne Laneways: Another art filled laneway

Didn’t want to name this one in the title –  it is another informally named lane: Piss-stain Alley. It is a group of small alleys and lanes chock full of interesting pieces well away from the usual areas of street art on public display but still in the CBD.

Melbourne Laneways: Blender Lane Stencil Art

Exploring Blender Lane recently I met a couple of the local studio artists who gave me a bit of a history of the laneway. One of the little nuggets of information that they gave me (maybe true maybe not) was that the end of the laneway was the 2nd oldest stencil art street gallery in the world – the oldest was the ancient Roman city of Pompeii. Blender Lane is extensively layered with years of stencils with some very nice pieces that have to be picked out amongst the colour and chaos…
