Hosier Lane is Melbourne’s home of “legal” graffiti and rich source of street art for collectors like myself. Pretty much every square inch of brickwork is covered with spray paint, stencils, stickers and decals, even the bins, empty crates and the road itself aren’t safe. I had a field day there one winter’s afternoon and also found some more great examples in Fitzroy and the People’s Republic of Brunswick. I like Melbourne’s tolerance of street art as part of the urban landscape and I love the art’s ephemeral nature ….. here one day, gone the next.
As Malcolm McClaren once said, “All art is theft”……. here’s some stolen works
