Chopper Lane, Collingwood

Chopper Lane is a small dead end alley that runs off Perry Street in Collingwood. This bright blue mural is at the end of the lane.

below: I can’t read the signature at the bottom right, any ideas?

looking to a dead end lane, Chopper Lane, wall is painted like a blue sky with a few clouds, text written on it.

Text in the mural:
“I meet love and I lose it,
I sense it, I reject it,
I pursue it,
I find it in small things
Like
When I stop to look at the sky
And I wonder
About You”

upper part is remains of a mural showing just a pair of woman's eyes, in blue, mural on the bottom of women working

below: The signature at the bottom right of this one is utama.co and lingerid.  Unfortunately, I cut off the signature on the left (partially visible here).

Goddard gallery

In Newtown (Sydney),  Goddard Street is only one small block long.  It runs west from King Street.  The north side of Goddard is the wall of one building and that wall is home to a number of paintings.  Gigi’s Pizza occupies the front part of the building, facing King street, but I’m not sure what else is there.  Most of the paintings are unsigned and I have only been able to find  information about some of them online.

around Jewell station

Jewell train station is on the Upfield line in Brunswick.  The Upfield Bikeway path runs alongside the tracks at this point.   Most of the walls along the bike path have street art on them.  This is a selection of the graffiti that I saw around Jewell station and south from there  to Park street.
