Street Art in Melbourne - Manallack and Saxon Streets, Brunswick

Today I rode along the Upfield bike and the road by Union Street was blocked so I did a detour along a bluestone lane to Manallack Street.  I pass that way often without any time to stop and smell the roses.  Today I was on holidays, my lunch date was cancelled and I had time to wander and wonder.  So I came across some wonderful sepia street art reflecting the history of Brunswick.  Then I wandered further and found some cheerful colourful street art including some on Saxon Street that was so infectious it had spread to the road.  I wish I knew more about the history but all I can do is stand back, admire and immerse!



I asked someone about the painting on the road and they told me it was done by the folks at Theodores so I am thinking perhaps I need to check out the cafe and bar!

  1. You always find the best street art! Love the 40s/50s inspired murals.

  3. Thanks for sharing Johanna.

  4. I love it when you show us Melbourne Street Art. I absolutely love the proliferation of it and how it tells a story.

  5. Wow, that street art is something else. It's very sedate where I'm living now and we don't even have graffiti, never mind anything as magnificent as what you've shown here.


Thanks for dropping by. I love hearing from you. Please share your thoughts and questions. Annoyingly the spammers are bombarding me so I have turned on the pesky captcha code (refresh to find an easy one if you don't like the first one)
