Melbourne: Hosier Lane street art

Here is a photo gallery I snapped in Melbourne. There isn't much I need to say about it; a number of talented artists have sprayed and wheatpasted their work on the walls of the iconic Hosier Lane.

If you like street art and happen to be in Melbourne, I recommend checking it out. Highly.

This is by Deb. I met her while I was down there. She's nice.

The famous Shepard Fairey and his OBEY poster. The other two posters are more recent work of his.

Milk crates included for scale.

Wanna bang?

I really liked these one-line posters. Straight to the point. That point is somewhere up your culo. If anyone knows who did them please comment below.

This is a draft sketch for Grand Theft Auto: Denmark 1628.

This reminds me of Roa.

And again.

GRAFFITI WARS. I find 'graff writers' hitting 'street artists' fascinating. I've lost count the number of times "art fag" has been sprayed on a paste-up or stencil in Sydney. A prime example of this dichotomous relationship is the Robbo vs Banksy saga.

Edward Scissorhands. 


This piece is called Found Cans in a Bin Yay.

lovin the creature paste-ups, agree with the ROAness of them.
Scissorhands looks more Bonham-Carter than Depp

Glad you like it Skel.
I agree it looks like Bonham-Carter.
