Townsville Street Art

Kennie Deaner Untitled 2014

Our oldest grandson proudly pointed out a huge sugar glider on one wall and a turtle riding on a croc’s back on another as we cruised the streets of Townsville over Christmas. Then at the Perc Tucker Gallery we spotted a map outlining a street art walking tour. At just over a kilometre the walk was the ideal length for me with my slowly-healing broken foot. This is just a sample of the fabulously inspiring work we saw.

Melbourne Street Art

I’ve grown to love Melbourne as a city since working there, mainly during the 1980s and 1990s. It’s a vibrant, energetic and colourful place, quirky and with loads of character for those who delve just below the surface. 

Some fabulously bold street art has been around here since the early days before mobile phones made it easy to snap and record. In recent years a whole new crop of ever-changing art has arisen. These pics were mostly taken in Hosier Lane, currently regarded as the centre point of Melbourne’s street art scene but there’s plenty more to be found.
