    Street Art

    Just spent a three day weekend down in Melbourne, a city so different to Sydney. Love the "lane way" culture they have that Sydney has tried to emulate without success. The city is full of small lanes and service alleys that would normally just be full of rubbish, parked cars and the stench of society. Melbourne claims these spaces and owns them. Some are full of little cafes , coffee shops and restaurants, others become little shopping malls, most have street art of some kind. The city appears to not only allow it but actually encourage it with official maps supplied FOC at the local tourist info booths. It doesn't seem to bother most building managers although there is a lane way in China Town that was marked on the map but appeared to have been freshly repainted in mono tone colours by the local restaurants.

    Like most art, it's value is in the eye of the beholder. I really appreciate some of the more "artistic" pieces, I have never really understood the whole "tagging" sub culture and don't understand why someone would "tag" over many of the larger pieces but such is life. I have been told that the artists don't expect their work to last, that when they do it they know it will be tagged and or completely covered.

    Anyway, I thought some may appreciate it as much as I do so I'll be throwing up many of the pics I took, sorry, only on my phone camera. Feel free to put up anything from your local area.

    Good stuff, Emu, I love "street art"!

    I was around a lot of artists thru high school and beyond, some are now famous (or infamous I suppose) and are getting paid to paint!

    This is a local piece I saw a year or so ago:



    And another one:

    Street art can sometimes be amazing, other times not so much. Iíd say whatís been posted so far falls into the amazing category.

    Not 100% sure if qualifies as street art as it's professionally commissioned but this is one of my favorite ones around Portland. It's huge and her hair is real plants and flowers.

    Some good stuff from all so far and yes WHALENARD I am more than happy to say that mural is street art.

    As for that bird, it certainly is cool but I can't help but feel I have seen it before. Have you posted it in the landscape thread or is there a chance your "hometown" has appeared on a documentary series called "Abandoned", hosted by some pro skater? Either way I really like it.

    Some more from Melbourne

    It may have been featured somewhere, and I may have posted it before? Don't recall though.

    It's on an abandoned building by the river in the middle of nowhere really. Pretty cool though.

    @LUSHSUX seems to have been pretty prolific recently given how little of their work is tagged or painted over.

    Sorry the eagle isn't in focus, it was raining and I was struggling holding the umbrella in one hand and using the phone in the other.

    I love street art. I find it every time we go to the city ie Toronto. I snap pics every change I get

    A few recent ones:

    From this summer. A few months later someone painted over this graffiti artist work. BTW Pooh was sitting alone in the chair when I joined him

    Kinda like that Artsy State Vehicle on University property....

    Interesting talent but agree, Iíd be pissed if someone did that to my business.
    Usually it seems to be relegated to run down areas around here. I have seen spaces set aside for it and it is amusing to passers by but I wouldnít want to have to look at it every day.
    Kinda like playing your personal music too loud in public.

    Not my thing. At all. This mountain man man avoids the asylum at all costs and only descends below 5000' to go to the airport. Unfortunately, trash comes up here and paints their "art" on rocks and trees in the forest.

    Yep, that's not cool at all, although I'm sure some would argue Rushmore is just an extension of art so why not? Completely out of place for me

    Interesting observation.
    As a patriotic conservative there's just something I donít like about ďdefacingĒ a place like was done at Rushmore. I visited there passing through to the Bighorns, and was not impressed. And Iím a fan of the men depicted there for their contributions in their time. Though considerably more tasteful than typical graffiti, I canít get around the unnatural nature of the monument. I suppose itís the size/ prominence/contextual placement of the thing. It comes across as arrogant rather than honoring and thatís unfortunate.
    Somehow I think those depicted might be a bit put off by it for similar reasons.
    The Lion of Lucerne somehow comes across differently to me.

    This mountain man man avoids the asylum at all costs and only descends below 5000' to go to the airport.
    Love the irony in that one.....

    No offence to those who think otherwise, but I too find this repulsive. No difference between this and any other type of vandalism, as far as I am concerned. The worst ugliness in my city takes this form. Worse yet, we seem to have only the cretins of the street artist world because the ďstreet artĒ here looks like something a 7 year old might doodle. When I see this, all I can think of is the poor owners of the defaced property.

    Iím going out on a limb here with the assumption that you did not study art in school.

    not that I know of, the wall belongs to a furniture building but is located near a paint shop for street art.

    No, both displays in Estes Park. The first one is on The Big Thompson River. Love The Cache la Poudre River though, especially at high elevation.

    Wow some great stuff.

    Judy, Toronto must have a real vibe to it judging by the amount, and variety of stuff you are posting. Thanks.

    DJ, electrical boxes get painted here as well but they soon get painted back over in boring green. I noticed that in Melbourne most of the artists make an effort not to paint over signage that is often on the boxes or may be on the walls they are working on. I wonder how much showing that little bit of respect goes to helping "officials" turn a blind eye.

    EMU, depending on the city around here. Some artists are chosen or in a drawing to paint electricL boxes.

    Waiting to see one painted up as realistic image of the interior as if the doors were open.....high voltage contacts appearing exposed.

    Then wrap it a few times with yellow ďCAUTIONĒ tape.

    Sit back and video people walking by.....

    This one deserves a post all of it's own. It rivals the fish for my favourite of the trip and to me, is almost mesmerising. It is on the wall directly opposite the the dancer in my last post. The artist has gone to some trouble with this one as they have fixed smooth panels onto the side of a brick building to use as their blank canvas. I have to presume this was a commissioned work.

    and a couple of quick pics of some stencilling I did in my boy's room when I renovated it back in 2018. He asked the boss if he could get some graffiti, she said yes and was going to pay someone. I'm a tight ar$e so had a go myself. Can't claim credit for the idea nor can I profess to be any good at free hand, even with specialist spray cans and nozzles.

    Not really sure what the point of this vandalism is, probably some wannabe hoods planning on boosting their insta or tic toc account views, possible also some sort of cultural turf war. Hope they get caught.

    Here's another pic from the back entrance to Culture Kings which opens onto Hosier Lane. No, he's not playing air guitar, he was getting sick of me taking photos and was trying to get out of the way. Others art destroyed was the middle two pics in post #72

    Cheers Corn, very clever. I need to take a walk around Newtown, Sydney. There is a lot around there but it's the other side of the city and parking is terrible. It's where I had to go to buy the low pressure cans to do the boys room, there is a shop there that just sells spray cans and paint pens specifically for this type of thing.

    Coincidence you bumped this Korn. Just yesterday I was by this location and took another photo of the final product.
