Hello, I created this blog because Melbourne is my city and I want people to see what a beautiful place it is. So come with me on a journey of discovery as we traverse the dining precincts, the culture, the laneways and hidden gems that make Melbourne marvellous.

Graffiti Triptych

 
Strolling through Melbourne Central last Thursday, as I was making my way along to get to Russell Street, this glorious riot of colour met my eyes.

 
The artwork was longer than a Chinese dragon! Melbourne has some very talented artists who adorn our laneways and alleys with terrific paintings.

 
I have been to all states and territories but Melbourne stands out as the Graffiti capital - so much originality - much more interesting than looking at plain walls.


 
The three shots joined together to give you some idea of what I saw.


Today's quote: I paint because I love it, and it adds character to any inanimate object. Whether it is a wall or a footpath. It brings the streets to life - Rone.

Fabulous, fantastic! We are quite spoiled with graffitis here, but these ones are something else. Forming them into a triptych was a great idea

Intriguing artwork! This goes far beyond the rushed graffitti around some streets!

I do not like graffiti, but I have to allow some rare exception and this is surely one of this. Great work.
