Giant Murals

One of the unique things about street art we noticed in Berlin are the giant murals. Splashed across the side of residential blocks, they not only bring colour to an otherwise plain wall but are a statement sometimes in itself. We wandered around all over Berlin looking for these pieces and as they are really…

Art on Bulowstrasse

After putting the man through the Berlin Philharmonic Survivor challenge last night (which he failed miserably and would have been instantly voted off the island), it was an easier task today. We were going to spend some time viewing the open art galleries of Berlin or in other words, Street art. Berlin has a reputation…

White Night Melbourne

After missing out on White Night last year, we were keen to make it this time. White Night is the one night in the year when almost the whole city of Melbourne is closed to pedestrian traffic only and various artists use landmark buildings around town as their backdrop for their light projections. I don’t…

Remembered always

There is graffiti, there is street art and then there are tributes like this. A beautiful piece done by Pia Brightman’s partner (Lenny Gould & a friend) back in March 2013. She used to live just around the corner here. And the piece was done in the weekend immediately after her death. I find it…

Art from Prahran

It has been a little while since I last shared street art photos on this blog, I thought I’ll post a few on this happy Friday! These are all located at the Windsor end of Chapel street where I ended up for lunch on Saturday. ( We went to Tokyo Tina for lunch which if…

RIP Cecil

Someone put up this fun string art of a lion a few weeks ago on a fence by a road I use often on the way to work. In fact, I have seen it in a few other places. However, when the cardboard sign “RIP CECIL” was added next to it recently, it completely changed…

A hot dog stand and street art

Next morning on our last day in Reykjavik, we woke up nice and easy. Shopping was on the list and we were also interested to check out Iceland’s street art. So to balance the two, we did not wander far from the main shopping street of Laugavegur. Moreover, we also wanted to check out the…

Frankston Sand Sculptures

With summer in full swing, we made our way down to the Frankston Waterfront to see the sand sculpting exhibition on display. Having always wanted to go to one but never been before, this was as good an opportunity as any. And we were pleased we did. In our days on the beach, we have…

Street Art Hong Kong

I had read and seen some of the street art inspired by the democracy protests in Hong Kong. However, you don’t need to elbow your way into those hot spots to find some nice works all over Hong Kong. With our priorities of friends and food though (not always in that order), we did not…
