While I have not seen a lot of graffiti street art around Sydney (probably because I don’t know where the good ones are!), I always love the surprise it gives me when I turn around a corner and bam, in my face, a big wall is painted with amazing graphics that make me laugh or marvel…

Funny to think that a paintbrush is an extension of my hand when I create art but for some, a spray can is!
I really admire that skill and I am hoping that the trend in commissioning street artists to paint around our cities will continue.
Who wouldn’t be into transforming an eye sore into something beautiful?!

Here are some that I really love for their originality, humour and wow factor!

What are your thoughts on street art? Do you think it’s cool or messy?

Do you have any cool examples where you live? Feel free to send me any photos!
