Street Art in Melbourne #10 - Coburg Street Art and MoreArt 2014
A few years back a friend commented that there wasn't any street art in Coburg, in the inner north of Melbourne. It all was happening in neighbouring Brunswick. However Coburg is changing. It is now a suburb boasting gentrified residents with money and time and a love of art. And Moreland City Council also supports street art in Coburg as can be seen right now with MoreArt 2014.

Pillars of the Community Celebration poles were created by Aaron James McGarry for the Coburg Carnivale this year. He also made the koalas out of old shopping bags (see the koala in the forked tree in the photo).
Facebook that it is part of the MoreArt 2014, the Moreland City Council's public art show.
Moreland Leader article about it.)
I hope you will agree with me that there is some really interesting street art around Coburg. If you are in the area, I recommend you check out the MoreArt 2014 page which has a little map of where you can see participating art pieces until 19 December 2014. Or just look out the window if you are on the Upfield train.
Update September 2015 - I have written another post on Street Art in Coburg II with more photos!
