Two large murals featuring women’s faces can been seen on Little Collins street just east of Exhibition street. Both were painted by street artist Rone. The most prominent mural is 12m high and can easily be seen from the street.
below: Slightly back from the street is a smaller mural with the faces of three more women. Most of Rone’s work features women’s faces.

Drewery Lane runs south between Little Lonsdale and Lonsdale streets in downtown Melbourne. It continues south of Lonsdale as Caledonian Lane and I have posted previously about the street art that I saw in Caledonian Lane. Although Drewery Lane is only one block long, three other alleys branch off of it, Drewery Place, Drewery Alley and Snider Lane. This post is about the street art that I saw on all of these alleys.
Hosier Lane in downtown Melbourne is always full of tourists. If you search online for street art in Melbourne, you will certainly find Hosier Lane. Like a lot of popular graffiti places, there is some good street art and there is some junk. I have been to Hosier Lane a few times now and what is interesting is how frequently things change in the alley. New paintings, or new little things are always popping up.

I love the sneering pink face beside the sign!
below: The third time I saw this wall, a life size man had been added.
Take your picture with a stranger!
