Street Art in Melbourne #9 Hosier Lane June 2014
Today I bring you street art from one of Melbourne's most famous street art locations, Hosier Lane. It is a small lane in the block bounded by Russell St, Flinders St, Swanston St and Flinders Lane in the CBD or city of Melbourne.
After taking photos of so much street art recently I was really struck just how touristy this lane seems compared to other street art locations. Where usually I find it pleasing to go off the beaten track and take photos in peace and quiet, Hosier Lane is busy with people wielding cameras. Likewise the walls of Hosier Lane are busy - with artwork. I haven't visited often but from a few infrequent visits I think the art there changes far more regularly than in other locations. I suspect if you go there today, a few months after my visit, much of the artwork you encounter might be different.
