I'm a little late ... but better late than never I guess.
I found more graffiti I just had to share ... in Union Lane just off the Bourke St Mall to be exact. Right in the middle of the city ... literally.
This time it's a huge installation ... a satirical piece on taggers (rather than graffiti artists). They're portrayed as sinister, ghoulish entities ... the whole thing's in macabre grey with the exception of a huge splash of red (for today's theme of course). The project is also so large I couldn't photograph it in one go. The lane's just too small to allow me to do that.
So here it is in snatches ... the glorious splash of red emanating from the paint can of the first ghoulish tagger.
The red's been thrown towards these graffitists. I particularly love this character at the bottom. Look at him hiding his face behind the bandanna ... and the serious hardware to cut fences etc.
Standing on his shoulders is this guy stretching across to tag a wall.
Here's a better shot of the three of them ... and sadly defaced by taggers. They just can't help themselves.
And at the top right is this strange character stretching across from the window painting the wall. Perhaps he's preparing the surface for future work?
For more glorious redness ... visit Mary at Work of the Poet.
