Any visitor to Melbourne will quickly realise that the locals don’t tolerate graffiti in their city spaces; they embrace it. For me, getting lost in the lane-ways and stumbling on a sudden burst of colour added to the anticipatory joy of turning each corner. It also tells me a lot about the people that live there. As Australia’s second largest city it has it’s own distinct style; multicultural, ballsy and fresh. Hard not to love. The street art in particular reminded me very much of our time spent in Buenos Aires, with just as many accents floating on the wind.
Here’s a peak.
Some people become cops because they want to make the world a better place. Some people become vandals because they want to make the world a better looking place. Banksy
