my home town of Melbourne is famous for its fabulous street art these days. When I was a kid, Melbourne was a rather dull city but in the last couple of decades, thanks to our very multicultural community and some progressive policies, the city is now one of the most exciting in the world. And the fabulous street art has contributed greatly to that atmosphere. A few years ago I started photographing some of the works of art I was discovering as I wandered around and now I'm hooked! Wherever I go I'm on the lookout for this fabulous form of public art.
Most of these photos are made in Melbourne, with a few from Sydney. I'll be adding more over time... I try to credit the artists but sometimes it's hard to figure out who it is.
