Melbourne's 86 tram route as a giant open air gallery of street art


Melbourne, Australia is internationally known for its street art and its trams. Melbourne Street Art 86 imagines Melbourne's 86 tram route as though it were a giant open air gallery of street art with its own regular tram service. The pages in the dark blue side bar below have photos of street art by the suburbs the tram passes through. Locations are noted by tram stop, street location and also on maps of the area that can be downloaded or printed. Other Melbourne suburbs rich in street art are also featured.

Art and Graffiti on the Move

Here as promised are some photos of mobile street art and graffiti. Some of these were taken with a phone that I do not really know how to use, not the Nikon, but I am sure you will get the idea.

The idea of art being mobile and constantly changing its context I think is an interesting one, though not something I am going to explore fully at this time. Perhaps the following two photographs, although not of artworks (well not what I think of as such), will suggest some of what is churning in my mind when I think about this.

Btw, the last of this sequence looks to me almost as though it has been painted to death.
