Hosier Lane

One of the most looked at graffiti laneways in Melbourne. Maeve and I have just watched a short doco on the graffiti culture in Melb and this laneway features heavily. What I love is that every single thing in this laneway has been painted or marked in some way. Its like the entire place has been paint bombed. But it's wonderful! One of the works in this picture is by a French artist named Fafi, who has done works all around the world. Also in this laneway are works done by people you may see walk past you in the street. The accessability of this art and the freedom of it is definitely what makes this one of the most visited places in Melbourne. Perhaps I can add my name to the long list and put some work down here eh?
