First day in Melbourne, Australia, we decided to fight against the jet lag walking in the city and finding street art around the area of Fitzroy.
Steve remembered that Fitzroy was the place to be in terms of street art and graffiti. And he was right, but 6 years after, it’s amazing how the city changed! Graffiti is now everywhere, at every street corners, we were on the edge of overdose!
We went there for 2 days, and we haven’t seen everything yet!
Here are a few photos of the pieces we found, and the artists we recognised:
Bonus: Melbourne is a proud city about its coffee, so if you want to share that pleasure with street artists, I advise you to go to Juddy Roller which is a place surrounded by street art pieces! Fitzroy is definitely a dynamic art scene.
Corner Johnston and Chapel Streets
Open from Monday to saturday, from 8am to 4pm
Edit: A huge thank to Peter who gave us all the artists name showed in this article!
