The girl and the owl

  • Melbourne is a city alive with art, and much of it can be seen on the street in the form of graffiti. Of course, the subject of graffiti is a controversial one. Melbourne has a reputation for great street art, but there is still a strong contingent who are wholly set against the art form, arguing instead that it is nothing but vandalism. Personally I only wish that more walls could be as beautiful, colorful, and expressive as many of the walls around Melbourne.

    Sadly I wasn’t able to identify the artist who created this particular piece found on Union Lane in the heart of the city. The walls in Union Lane are a famously ever changing canvas of some gorgeous graffiti and is a well established tourist draw along with Hosier Lane not far from Federation Square.
