One of the charming characteristics of Melbourne are its alleyways. Every major street have smaller ones that run from both sides of them, creating ideal canvases for street artists. New things are created here every day.
The city is one of the world capitals of street art, which includes stencils, paste-ups and murals (this doesn't include graffiti and tagging - which are illegal).
I was lucky enough to have lots of time for wandering around the city and these photos are just a small percentage of the street art I found.
