[Lanes & Alleyways] A Quick Guide to Melbourne’s Ever-Evolving Street Art

With so many nooks, crannies, concrete walls and innocent dumpsters to spice up, the inner city of Melbourne is a living canvas for restless and relentless creatives. With several narrow lanes and back alleys dedicated to quality street art (and less aesthetic wall tagging), there is without a doubt a whole lot of character and charm between the claustrophobic walls of the CBD. The famous Hossier Lane is a prime example of this fervent spray paint culture. Countless other hidden streets are peppered with comical caricatures and eye-popping, punch-in-the-face masterpieces — AC/DC Lane, with its ‘loud’ art, is a particular tourist favourite, while Rankins Lane offers a more subtle vibe.

Here is our visually comprehensive tour of 7 different must-see graffiti-laden streets we visited in December 2015.
