Birthday-Oner

So here we are, I honestly can’t believe its come to this but… ArtyGraffarti.com turned 1 yesterday, thats 365 [give or take] days of documenting Melbourne’s strong street art and graffiti scene. I still never thought it would last this long and the opportunities and people I’ve met through doing it have just been the…

The Long Stretch

Whenever I get tired or a little bored of the same old spots, I usually head over to a train line and see whats going on down there, when the train’s aren’t available, the walls will usually get a nice layer of the good stuff. Brunswick
