Melbourne Graffiti Streets

In 1984 Keith Haring visited Melbourne Australia and created a street mural based on his famous chalk drawings in New York City. The city in its infinite wisdom decided to allow mural paintings by other artists in a number of city streets. The results are an amazingly vibrant city and very little tagging and offensive graffiti in other parts of the city.

These pictures were taken along Hosier lane. There are at least 15 other designated art areas like this. Since it is not illegal, the artists can paint in broad daylight and pose for pictures and chat with fans.
