MELBOURNE: Random paste-up **UPDATED**


(Image via Tofutti Break)

Hi, I'm the Acid Midget. 

I take photos of street art and collate them on a weblog.

This not-for-profit project fills the hours between my two jobs - elephant breeding and directing stop-motion soft toy porn.

But street art fascinates me most because it speaks the language of dissent many left-leaning people are voiceless to express.

(Smith St, Fitzroy, Melbourne)

Anyway, I found this paste-up in Melbourne, feeling the same as this gruff lil kid.

My experience (sadness) in that space was mirrored in what I saw on this wall.

Without it, I'd only stare at advertising billboards and posters depicting gleaming models living model lives.

What do we relate to more - decaying angst or idealised grandeur?

UPDATE:

Reader submitted artworks ---- Miami-based street art fiend Street Art dropped the airbrush on these photos and posted them on the Acid Midget Facebook page:


It really blows me away. 


It's like they've been sprayed by a graf artist in the street. We're taking street art to the web yall.
