Melbourne Walks: Street Art

Melbourne Walks provides walking tours around Melbourne and recently I was lucky to be part of a walking tour exploring the lane ways to discover fantastic street art. The tour guide, whose name escapes me, have us a fascinating insight into the history of the movement and the different styles used by artists, from stencils to found objects, paint and mosaics. The weather wasn’t the best for being outdoors however the rain did make the artwork shine.

If ever you go to Melbourne I highly recommend going on one of these walking tours and if you need a break after all the walking there are plenty of cafés and bars where you can find nourishment.

    Wow – those are amazing! Some of it even looks like it’s in 3D. The one near the FAD gallery sign looks like it might walk right out of the wall. I love glancing down alleys and seeing art like this.

      They are amazing and we only saw a small selection of the artwork, even if you don’t like the different styles you still have to admire their creativity and ability to bring life to the laneways.
