Inspired by Street Art in Melbourne, Australia

Now if you know me…you know I am crazy about street art – and so Melbourne is a pretty amazing place to be for street art. There was street art EVERYWHERE , best know for it’s street art is Hosier Lane right across from the National Gallery.

I really loved this one for it’s stencil work and because it was only two colored- it stuck out in the bright color-spray-paint abundance

Can you tell the three of us had a good time?  LOL- what a bunch of goofs we are ;)

This was a great first day after a 22 hour flight – since it was raining the color boost awakened us – we really needed that.

      I have been to these lanes in Melbourne since I was 15yo and now I am 51 ,and the artwork has evolved with the city,I would love to have taken photos from the different era’s it seems to get better and better everytime I go into the city . But you have done a great job showing the talent Melbourne has to offer.

    Phenomenal Exhibit! Thank you Nathalie. Makes me wonder if the motivation behind street art may be a response to disenchantment with the world around them. These artists’ way of proclaiming: ” If you can’t fix it, paint it!”
