The identity of the Northern suburb of Brunswick is intrinsically linked to graffiti and street art. From it’s hidden laneways covered in monotone tags and stencils, to the walls that line the train tracks between Anstey and Jewell Stations, thick with generation’s worth of paint. Street art and graffiti are often clustered into key areas, where art is intensely practiced and the audience is just as eager to participate. This neighbourhood is exactly that, taking the exclusivity of the white cube gallery and instead presenting art as free, accessible and just around the corner. Throughout this tour your knowledge of street art and graffiti will be expanded as you question it’s role in adding vibrancy, connecting the personal to the local and in engaging it’s audience with their urban surroundings. This tour will explore the idea that street art and graffiti have a transient nature and that aesthetically and culturally, Brunswick would not be recognisable without it.
