Hosier Lane Melbourne by Ian English

$6.60


Hosier Lane is famous for its graffiti art. There are legal walls here and some famous artists have made their mark.
Last week the Melbourne City Council was told to go in and clean up the rat infested garbage. During this, a very famous stencil of a rat by celebrated British graffiti artist Banksy was painted over. This has caused quite a stir and made page 3 of the Melbourne Age newspaper.

This image was taken just before the incident occurred.

    Great to see this pic, really good work Ian!

  • Thanks Richard, this is a photographers paradise as you well know. I see from your pic of Hosier Lane that the art has changed but the grey motor scooter is still in the same spot!!!

    Great work! You’ve really brought those colours to life. Your story reminds me of something I saw today – a small patch of wall facing the main street, on which had been witten (apparently in black marker) “Dear Council, this wall is private property, and you have no right to remove anything written here. Thanks.”

  • G’day Adam, interesting observation of yours. There are signs up on some walls here which authorise street art but apparently one side of the street is legal and other parts are not. Curious!!
