Colourful Sydney Street Art: Newtown area

Stencils, paste-ups, murals, graffiti and even tagging - I must admit I do enjoy them all. They are plentiful all over Sydney but some of the largest and most artistic can be found in the Newtown area including Camperdown, Enmore, Erskineville and St Peters where there has been street art since the 1980's.
I love to see the streets used as a canvas for something other than advertising. Streets as a gallery brings the work directly to the viewer. No more posh wine gallery opening nights needed when you can walk past the art every day.

Urban art at it's best: catch it now before it's gone.
