Sunday Selections #218

Sunday Selections was originally brought to us by Kim, of Frogpondsrock, as an ongoing meme where participants could post previously unused photos languishing in their files. 

The meme is now continued by River at Drifting through life.  The rules are so simple as to be almost non-existent.  Post some photos under the title Sunday Selections and link back to River.  Clicking on any of the photos will make them embiggen.

Like River I usually run with a theme. Our local Government is working hard at the moment in an attempt to revitalise our city centre.  I saw an article which said as part of the process they were opening up a service laneway in the heart of the city to street art.  I had to go into town anyway one day this week, so I took the camera.

The art started as I headed out the door.

A stunning sunrise.




It takes me two bus trips to get into town.  I changed buses at an interchange, and admired, as always, a mural on the wall.




Another bus trip, and then to the laneway in question.
















It is still not an enticing or particularly inviting area, but the colour does liven it up.  I would be happy to see the work going further up those walls too.  Much more work to do, but a promising start.

    I admire anyone who can get up to catch a great sunrise... I'm so much more a sunrise guy :)

    Those artists really are fantastic and I'm glad the city is giving them an outlet... the Star Wars one is amazing!

    I agree, the lane is not really "sexy" yet, but boy, it looks a whole lot better (safer even?) than a "regular" lane.

    Happy Easter :)

      That particular alley is mostly used by service trucks delivering goods, and as a short-cut between streets. I think it is safe(ish) and certainly looks brighter than it did. The Storm Troopers were great weren't they?

  20. Give it time and it may come together. Just add some tables and chairs (no backs on the chairs keeps the oldies away) among the rubbish bins, a window serving coffee, many discarded cigarette buts and some graffiti over the murals and presto, Melbourne laneway culture.

    I like the train station mural, but the street art is fabulous! I like the Star Wars characters, but can never remember which ones they are. Jedi? Or not?

  27. Your photos of urban mural work are superb. Such a movement began in my city 20 years ago and still has momentum. The result is a constant reminder that noise and pressure are not the predominant influences on our moods, dispositions, our lives. There can be color, imagery serious and whimsical, sacred and profane. Oh my, you have some fine artists there.

    1. Geo.: I hope those talented artists come back and hear just how much people appreciate them. Colour adds so much and, as you say the sheer variety of the imagery speaks to so many of us. Saying different things on different days to different people, but connecting us. Which is lovely.

  41. This looks so interesting - not necessarily what I like, but it is colorful, artful and done by talented artists. Street art can be so versatile. I actually really like the mural at the first bus station, and I was wondering whether this is a giant snake who had a kangaroo for lunch. Or does it represent something completely different that I am not aware of?

    1. Carola Bartz: I didn't like all of the murals either, but love that they are there.
      The first mural is strongly Australian, featuring our native birds and animals. The Rainbow Serpent has immense significance to our indigenous population. Lots of stories, but it is often seen as a creator - with the power to destroy.

    You are not imagining this! It's almost three thirty in the morning and I trying to muster up the energy to comment. Ironically, part of my exhaustion also means erratic sleep.

    2. “There is some graffiti in the city, and I think that encouraging street art is one way being used to try and discourage it. Time will tell.”

      Maybe. What I saw in one of the photos looked like a gang signature, and probably the best way to deal with gangs is to kill their members. I actually remember a time when there was little to know graffiti here (in my town) and when it arrived, there was an effort to paint it over quickly, but it has become overwhelming, and the ugliest--and scariest--of it is left by gangs.

      Delete
    3. Snowbrush: If, as I suspect, you mean the last photo the 'gang signature' has been there for years. We don't (I think) have much of a gang culture. A few teenage 'wanna-be's". We do have some tagging, mostly on fences and storm water drains. In areas where public art has been allowed there is less graffiti. Not none, but less.

    1. Spacerguy: Or in the woods. The writing/graffiti in that image predates the art attack. Hopefully it doesn't spread.

    1. Strayer: It is a bit of a mixed bag. There are some beautiful spots, and a lot of art. There is also a lot of complaining every time a new piece is installed. Mostly on cost basis, sometimes because the complainer doesn't like the piece in question.
