A fundamental purpose inherent to most artistic disciplines is the underlying intention to appeal to and connect with human emotion... and its absolutely true. Graffiti is a form of an art where people make their impressions in view of other people and this was very...More

It is a must-see in Melbourne, provided you like that type of art which is in Melbourne a mix of politically and socially charged messages but also just plain cool artistic expression. The artworks are everywhere here in the Hosier Lane surroundings (meaning not just...More
