Melbourne Fitzroy #1

DSC_2537


First day in Melbourne, Australia, we decided to fight against the jet lag walking in the city and finding street art around the area of Fitzroy.

Steve remembered that Fitzroy was the place to be in terms of street art and graffiti. And he was right, but 6 years after, it’s amazing how the city changed! Graffiti is now everywhere, at every street corners, we were on the edge of overdose!

We went there for 2 days, and we haven’t seen everything yet!

Here are a few photos of the pieces we found, and the artists we recognised:

Melbourne street art

Suki - Melbourne street art

Melbourne street art

Ghostpatrol - Melbourne street art

Melbourne street art

Form - Melbourne street art

Be Free - Melbourne street art

Be Free - Melbourne street art

Bonus: Melbourne is a proud city about its coffee, so if you want to share that pleasure with street artists, I advise you to go to Juddy Roller which is a place surrounded by street art pieces! Fitzroy is definitely a dynamic art scene.

    pic 2 – done from Iran – this was done in 200b and there are still a couple around – he is on flickr, and has a nice stencil in bellevile, http://www.flickr.com/photos/andrianakis/5961374809/in/set-72157627132491945
    pic 3 – suki – she has a site on Facebook
    pic 4 – ghostpatrol, he has a site on flickr
    pic 5 – form, i think he is inactive, but this is at least 8 years old
    also, the artist “he is”, is actually ears, but obviously our accent is a hard one to decipher at times.
    love your work, and let me know if you want me to give you some more tips as to where to get the best street art in this city.
    thanks,
    peter
