Street art in Melbourne: Fitzroy (part 1)


Last weekend I was itching to go somewhere and take some photos. I put out a call on Facebook for suggestions and one of my friends suggested I go to Johnston St, Fiztroy to look at the street art. That area is well known for it’s art. There are lots of small streets and laneways with plain brick walls that provide the perfect canvas for street artists. I love this kind of art. A lot of people hate it, calling it grafitti but it’s much more than that. These artists are so talented and are encouraged to paint in this area. There’s a lot of similar artwork in the famous laneways of the CBD.
