Melbourne’s Best Graffiti (Other Than Hosier Lane)

February 1, 2015 |

Today these streets are threatened by a lack of public space, perhaps due to the privatisation of many public spaces and the city council’s mission to paint over pieces of art. So it begs the question, does Brisbane have a problem with graffiti?
