Upper West Side Street Art Precinct

Mural

A new arts precinct has successfully landed in Melbourne’s CBD, as lord mayor Robert Doyle helped launch the cities first official Street Art Precinct, giving new life to the once cold concrete jungle in the west end.

The project was curated by us at Juddy Roller in partnership with Far East Consortium and Citypower/Powercor, along with six of Australia’s best street artists. The collaboration of brains and muscle got to work and managed to produce a new feat for the little laneway.

Despite the severe weather warnings for the incoming rain over the weekend, the artists braved the elements to put on a spectacular show for the city of Melbourne. So far, six artists have helped transform the electrical sub-station in the Upper West Side development on the corner of Spencer and Little Bourke streets, opposite Southern Cross Station. The artists involved were Adnate, Dvate, Fintan Magee, Rone, Smug and Sofles, so you can see why this is something worth talking about.
