The lanes of Melbourne are renowned for their street art and graffiti. The maze like back lanes of the central city you’d imagine would be places to avoid at night. Instead there are many clubs and nightspots, very much a vibrant nightlife, as well as tourists and other photographers there to see the graffiti.
Every time I visit these lanes I don’t know what to expect as the layers of art build up over time. This particular piece, a depiction of the Hindu deity Ganesh, was created in early 2010 by “Deb” and could be found in Hosier Lane just off Flinders Lane. I haven’t been there lately and I wonder if it’s still there or now hiding under more recent work.
