Saturday night, the streets of Newtown/Sydney.

A few weeks ago these large format paper graffiti pieces began appering on this wall (unknown artist)….then Dave wandered past…with a piece of chalk…

This guy was having a night out and found a way to merge into the work – thankyu stranger.

All words, chalk graffiti and photography done by me as part of the ongoing evolving saga of Johnny (street poet) and Dave (his lover / buddy / protector / muse and boyfriend.

Thanks Bruce for help with direction, spelling and for all the fun with this one :)

    Paper graffiti…what is that? Grand composition and delivery.

  • I don’t know but I don’t know what else to call them. They are huge cut out hand made posters which are stuck up on public walls…as graffiti
