Melbourne Street Art – Best of January 2017 Pt2

The selection below was some of the best I found in January 2017 (Part 1). A mixture of spray painting, pasteups and stencils. Most were gone (over-sprayed) in the following days. The photos were mostly taken in Hosier & Rutledge Lanes and a few other laneways around Melbourne CBD (ACDC Lane, Duckboard Place, Union Lane) – all images taken with an iPhone 6S and uploaded as taken, i.e. no editing. (An interesting way to try and improve general photography skills)

Melbourne Street Art – Best of January 2017 Pt1

I like to wander the laneways and alleys of Melbourne looking for the latest in street art. This selection was some of the best I found in January 2017. A mixture of spray painting, pasteups and stencils. Most were gone (over-sprayed) in the following days. The artworks below were mostly taken in Hosier & Rutledge Lanes and a few other laneways around Melbourne CBD (ACDC Lane, Duckboard Place, Union Lane) – all images taken with an iPhone 6S and uploaded as taken, i.e. no editing.

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.

Tree Man of AC/DC Lane

Over a few days I watched a new mural being created in AC DC Lane. Multi-story high man with a large tree branch. There has been a lot of construction work within the area of ACDC Lane and Duckboard Place. It makes a nice change to have something new and interesting to look at rather than construction vehicles and piles of excavation mess.

Protest and Statement Street Art

At various street art sites you can always find good examples of protest and statement art. They are usually much smaller and one needs to look in the out of the way places along the laneway walls. The pictures below were taken in the last week.

Duckboard Place: Food, Art, Music…

Part 2 of the ACDC Lane loop brings us to Duckboard Place – the Laneway that takes us back around to Flinders Lane. It has some very good restaurants, an after hours pop-up bar, residential accesses and great wall art.
