Religion has always been an element which can be used to produce a sense of mystery in art, and street art frequently employs it and “play” with it. The religious elements in Melbourne street art has made it, sometimes, interestingly disturbing, strongly eye-catching or even a moral compass. Look very carefully and what you find will surprise you. Like the “Hare Rama” in the union lane. The 16 words Vaishnava mantra has stayed here for very long and the sense of holy has never been covered. Perhaps you know nothing about Hinduism or any other religion, but the tour just begin and the mantra is just a brief intro.
