Hosier Lane Melbourne

Ian English

Castle Hill, Australia

Artist's Description

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.
