UPdated Hosier Laneway

“Speak softly, but carry a big can of paint.” – Banksy, Wall and Piece

I have not visited Hosier Lane (Melbourne’s most celebrated lane for Streetart) for at least a year because of the pandemic. Last November was the first time that I was able to walk it’s cobblestone streets again once the restrictions have eased. It was no surprise that almost all of the street art were UPdated.

Amidst the aerosol painted walls, I noticed a few street art sculpture of faces with different expressions. They may have been there previously but now it was covered with layers upon layers of paint which made it a lot more interesting.

      You just have to look longer and harder as it is easy to overlook. Thanks Becky.

      Everything’s different now. Except for the Aboriginal boy at the top of the buildings. I guess because that is very hard to reach.
