There are many a Melbourne graffiti tour that dives into our laneways to show the best we have to offer. Unfortunately most of the time there is not that much to impress people. Other than the alleyway around Movida – and that doesn’t really change all that much, and a few commissioned pieces around the place – there ain’t that much to it.
I recently returned from London and my old stomping ground in London’s East End and took my camera along for good measure. Having been based over there for 5 years I know how original and ever-changing the graffiti scene is over there. Most of the photos in this post were taken in the exact same locations that I covered in my first round up last year. So you can be assured that many of these new pieces are covering up the previous ones.
I went through Brick Lane, Hoxton, Shoreditch and London Fields to show the people of Melbourne what real graffiti looks like. See if you can pick the same locations shot last time with the new paint job.
Look out for Part 2 – for some of the best. Saving the best for last.
