Trains and street art have always had a strong relationship. From the subway of New York, to the tube of London, trains and street art have gone hand in hand. With surfaces such as the blank concrete walls of train stations, fences along train lines, or the trains themselves, it’s easy to see why. Thousands of people use trains every day, and what better way to get people to see your work other than putting it right in front of them?
For Boronia and Ferntree Gully this resulted in its train station and much of the surrounding area becoming a street art haven. With not only the train line becoming covered in street art but each and every blank wall becoming prime property for artists. This tour will focus on the street art culture of Boronia and Ferntree Gully. With an array of tags and throw ups, and the occasional mural these two suburbs are a prime example of the outer suburban Australian street art scene.
