Perth street art

Perth, like most places to be honest, has gained a lot more street art in recent years. I remember none from my previous trip seven years ago. Most of these examples came from the The University of Western Australia campus. It was also home to these rather wonderful houses on legs, bringing back childhood memories…

Reykjavik street art

Continuing my series of street art in unexpected places (see also Tbilisi, Iran, Hobart, Adelaide, New Plymouth, Alice Springs) with an exploration of Iceland’s capital. Around the city centre were plenty of interesting examples. The most impressive were those covering the entire side of buildings. This was one of the more colourful car parks I’ve…

Iranian Street Art

Continuing my series of street art from unexpected parts of the world, I found plenty of street art across Iran, particularly in Tehran and Eghlid. Tehran was full of street art, part of a city initiative that provides free scaffolding for local artists to paint what they want across the side of many city blocks.…

New Plymouth Street Art

Continuing my series of street art from random places around the world with New Plymouth, heart of the Taranaki region of North Island, New Zealand. There is definitely an animal theme here, including a building sized elephant and some colourful foxes. Love the eels, reflecting in the water… …and the purple bull and safety warnings…

Hobart Street Art

As I’d expected given it’s arty culture there was a fair amount of street art in Hobart. My favourites though were the signal boxes I found around town, which had been painted as part of a local initiative. It became a good little treasure hunt tracking them down around the city. Finally not sure if…

Alice Springs street art and lights

Proving that you can find street art pretty much everywhere these days I found a fair amount in Alice Springs. There was one wall in particular that impressed with a sci-fi camel, robotic eagle, scary parrot, giant snail, alien flowers and a local fella. There was a somewhat surreal montage by the old Stuart Town…

Adelaide street art

Street art seems obligatory for any city these days, from Canberra to Wellington to Tbilisi, and Adelaide was no exception. Some of it was surprisingly political… While others more decorative… I particularly like this warehouse cafe tucked down a side street. There were also a couple of walls in Clare, heart of the South Australia wine region…
