  4. A collage of many photos of a man’s neck and ear, a studded collar and a woman’s fingers with long fingernails, all in a sickly green colour.

endless street art

Or rather, the street art of endless.  Whenever I see, or think about, his street art, the song ‘Endless Love’ as sung by Lionel Ritchie and Diana Ross comes into my head.  Not quite the vision that should be inspired by his work especially since a lot of his images involve weapons, big weapons.

below: No sign of guns in this one though… Queen Elizabeth with hard hat on, ready to work.

street art piece of head of Queen Elizabeth, wearing a hard hat with endless written on it, as well as a yellow scarf with Yves Saint Laurent logo on it.

Another image that endless uses a lot is a coke can.

a coca cola can painted as an endless classic where the words end less are written in the same style as coca cola on the iconic red can

A coke zero black can is turned into a can of spray paint in this street art paste up. Instead of coca cola it says end less

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.
