Sydney Graffiti #1

We arrived in Sydney / Australia on the 28th of December, 2011 and we walked around a few areas to check out some street art and graffiti artwork.
We went to the areas of Surry Hills and Newtown so far and these are a few pictures of what we found on the streets.

First, a mural painted by the graffiti artist Ironlak which we find very realistic and funny at the same time:

Then this mural found in Newtown, on King Street – painted byTeazer: www.teazer.com.au

We also found a mural of the great artist EARS commissionned for a music store – artist that we discovered firstly in Melbourne:

And right next to it, another one by Lister:

Next stage is to visit Cockatoo Island, tiny island close to Sydney by ferry where the famous OUTPOST project took place untill the 11th of December, 2011. Maybe you heard about this before…

Apparently, it is still possible to access the areas which have been painted by the artists (ROA was there for the European part) and the island is nice just to walk around, so let’s check this out!

    Hey, thanks for your visit!
    We head over yesterday, and we saw a couple of pieces… The one of ROA is stunning (I’m a huge fan). Thanks for your link, I will share it on our StreetLove Facebook fan page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/StreetLove/128335703854139 (Join us!)
    Tomorrow, we plan to go to Newtown for more graffiti & street art!

    Ironlak est une marque de peinture australienne ;D
    En fait c’est un mur fait par Numskull et Beastman contre le « Graffiti action day »:

      Je suis toujours étonnée par tout ceque tu connais, c’est dingue !
      Je vais faire des recherches pour Ironlak car beaucoup de fresques sont signées ainsi…
      Merci 😉
