One cannot talk enough about Melbourne’s street art culture. It is vibrant, it is energetic and it is everywhere! Don’t be surprised if you stumble upon a gorgeous geisha staring you down, find a wall of multicolored squiggles when you turn the corner, walk alongside fantastical six-legged beasts or meet a monochrome gang of six-year-olds practicing graceful ballet moves. Although I’ve lost many photographs from my year-long stay in Melbourne, thanks to a broken hard drive 😥 I remember those long walks around town discovering a new scene almost every day and clicking away photos to my heart’s content. My favorite spots were Degraves Street & Hosier Lane in Melbourne, as well as the funky Fitzroy & Brunswick neighborhoods on the edge of town. I could spend hours looking at these beautiful expressions of art.
