guerilla territory

As I have walked around Melbourne, I have seen a number of paper paste-ups by street artist baby guerilla.  I’ve collected the photos that I have taken of these paste-ups in the past month and put them in one blog post.  Some of these photos have appeared in previous posts.

On a brick wall, in yellow, are the words guerilla territory as well as a horizontal pasteup of a black and white drawing of a boy.

down Drewery Lane

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.

Two sets of words, one on white paste-up on a brown wall, and one written directly on the wall in black marker. On the white: How could he only ve been thinking for 4 two days/isn't thinking an ongoing process. and on the brown: Oh Ian I'll bring the old box where the quiet lies and time died. Oh Ian I'll bring it all for you to see - Ian.
