Top Graffiti Spots in Brisbane – Melbourne You've Got Competition

Brisbane street art gives the graffiti enhanced alleys of Melbourne some pretty good competition; meaning you don't need to make the special trip to enjoy this art. Here are some of the top picks.

1

Let's Start with James Street Fortitude Valley – No 56 James Street

Here simplicity meets talent; relish the art work on this street that's seems almost simple enough to be attempted on your own although you know you never could; since it's all part of the marvellous talent. White lines that twist and curl on a black background create a sense of magical escapism as you lose yourself in the enchanting creation.

No 49 James Street

Located at the back of Jamie's Espresso this driveway is an explosion of graffiti art talents. There is a choice to savour here from traditional typo phrases to gorillas sporting candy pink afros. Yes, the place is well worth a visit for some pretty exceptional pieces of wall art.

Winn Lane also in Fortitude Valley

Just off Winn Lane is 'sticker haven' which is literally just that; wall art created with a multitude of stickers. Explore a bit more and you will come across bits of graffiti that are yours to decipher. Abstract like pieces that strive to send out a message, making it an interesting browse, when you are not enjoying the comforts of your Brisbane serviced apartment. Just outside of Winn Lane adorning a brick wall is a little gem; a rather cool drawing of figure that you most likely will want to pose next to. Do check it out.

24 Ross Street – Newstead

Experience the genius creations of Fintan Magee at this point. Don't know the artist? A quick Google search will yield the talented creations of this maestro. A very large and stunning piece of work adorns the wall of Ross Street; a testimony to the artist creative mindset. Mind you touring these sites require a city central location and Brisbane does well to offer excellent apartment type hotels to tourists on the run. Like Oaks Casino Towers most accommodation options offer easy access to public transport and are within walking distance of most streets which is the best option for exploring graffiti art in the city.

26 Wickham Grove – Newstead

Just 2 minutes from the 'upside down man' on 24 Ross Street is this marvellous piece of art. It's a bit hard to find though but well worth the effort, for the mesmerizing quality of this talented piece, will stay with you long after you leave.

Mitchelton Park

The picture of a Daschund dog stealing sausages from an unsuspecting lady is a treat. This piece of artwork is located on the wall between the male and female public toilettes of Mitchelton Park. After all its wall graffiti, hence any location counts right?

Caxton Street

Some really talented work is on display in this precinct. There are about two to three pieces worth admiring. Some are conundrums which your mind needs to work out; head on over there folks and be intrigued.
