Drewery Lane Street Art Project

In Drewery Lane at the rear of Legacy House, a special project has been slowly developing over the last few years. A mosaic artist, Sankar Nadeson, has been creating long walls of ceramic tiles and mosiacs. Sankar is a skilled mosaic artist, tiler and teacher. He has been working with schools and various art programs to teach people how to make ceramic tiles and then putting them up onto the walls of Drewery Lane. The theme of the art work has been Legacy. Legacy is a charity organisation that supports families of defence force personnel who have been injured or killed. Many of the tiles below were made by kids with strong ties to the defence forces.

Drewery Lane explored

Drewery Lane is an interesting lane off Lonsdale St in the Melbourne CBD. There are three linked lanes with an eclectic mix of art –  from murals, to plaques commemorating Legacy ( a charitable organisation that helps families of War veterans) to weird building statues and a grungy bar. I have no idea what the statue below is suppose to represent or why it is there…some research for another time…

Building Art, Drewery Lane,  – I have no idea about this sculpture but I quite like it. 

Down one of the side lanes called Sniders Lane is a small bar called Sister Bella, a grungy student bar with a lot of character.

A new Lane explored

While on a lunch-time wander around town I noticed a large colourful mural in a Lane off Lonsdale St – Drewery Lane. Having a good look around, I explored the art work in the lane. There are actually two ajoining lanes with some interesting artwork – a mix of large murals, art installations and an  unusual building sculpture. There is also a hidden laneway bar. Below are a few of the murals in Drewery and Sniders Lanes. (part 1)
