Birds. They're everywhere -- one of the only animals you can see all over the place in Melbourne. Not only in real life, but in street art too. Why the fascination with birds?
The tour focuses on investigating how birds are represented in street art, and how they are used by the artist to form a connection between the viewer, the piece in question and the surrounding artworks. It takes the audience through an alley that is, for some reason, always surprisingly empty considering its location adjacent to the Queen Victoria Markets: a little tunnel of calm compared to the buzzing market place. The alley features both commissioned and non-commissioned art with plenty of pieces by iconic Melbourne artists.
