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…

Protest Art: Posters, Stencils, Stickers, Balaclavas

Amongst the large murals and spray-painted images in Hosier  and Rutledge Lanes are quite a few smaller ones. Many are comments, statements, protests and funny thoughts. I like finding these more unusual images.

(Update: I walked through Hosier Lane today and many of the larger pieces that I have posted over the last few days that were taken a few weeks ago are now gone or are partially obscured by other artists work. Much of the new work seems to be large ornate tags rather than pictures  – I will have a look after the long weekend coming up)

Laneways of Street Art

Moving further down Hosier Lane there is a looping alley called Rutledge Lane with its own artwork on every wall and surface. I spent a few minutes watching an artist work as well as helping a few tourists take some photos of themselves with the walls…sometime the selfie sticks are just not long enough.

Near the bottom of Hosier Lane is a very good Tapas and modern Spanish style restaurant called Movida.
