This batch of artwork includes another Adnate mural, a second round of Hosier Lane photos, and some great pieces from around Chinatown, particularly Croft Alley. I love the stencil of Philip Seymour Hoffman on Hosier Lane as well as the futuristic portraits of women, one of which is to the left. Some of the detail in the Croft Alley murals is absolutely incredible, and the colors are outstanding.

If you like these photos, check out batches 1 and 2.

Street Art in Melbourne: Part 2

This batch of photos comes mostly from Stevenson Lane in the CBD and the neighborhoods of Collingwood and Fitzroy. Some of the most impressive murals (only one of which I was able to get a good photo of) are the gigantic women’s faces done by the extremely talented Adnate. His works are mostly commissioned and they tower above the city streets.

There are some whimsical characters to be found on doorways and next to windows, as well as some environmentally-minded works like the “I’m Getting a Brazilian” sticker.  I quite like the “Now” stencil – a reminder to focus on the present moment – which can be found in various places throughout the city. The images of the iconic Ned Kelly found on Stevenson Lane (off of Tattersall’s Lane) are also great.

This is only a tiny sampling of what can be found on Melbourne’s Streets. A lot of the most impressive works are too big to get proper photos of and simply must be seen in person.
