Melbourne Street Art IIIYarnbombed bycicle

The first time I saw a yarnbombed place was in Cologne. Three benches got covered like from a caring grandmother. Yarn Bombing is compared to the other Street Art movements a quite new one. Popular spots are bike racks, stairs, benches, statues, trees and lamp posts.

Recently I found in Melbourne a bike that got covered almoust all over. This yarnbombed bike is a beautiful example of guerilla knitting, but a lot more happened that day on Federationsquare. The 11th of June was actually the International Yarn Bombing day. Learning by doing, I guess. I figured out too late and arrived there, when they already finished the happening.

This very soft version of urban vandalism is appearing all around the world. Have a closer look around and may be you find sth nice, too.

On that day I didn’t find only Knitting Art, click on a picture below and the gallery with pictures of Paste Ups, Posters and Stencils will start.

Melbourne Street Art Part II

It’s like finding hidden treasures when I discover a new piece of Street Art in a little alley, in a house entrance or above sth you wouldn’t see, when you only look at eye level. Often I realise not until reviewing the pictures the sophisticated messages, political statements or beauteousness of a place… more than when I am actually there. Weird. But however, that’s my addiction.

Of course I heard of the Street Art Culture before I went to Melbourne, but I didn’t know that the Melbourne City Council actually supports Street Art. It says “Do art, not tags” and I totally agree. When I saw Swoon’s work tagged by a Graffitti Sprayer I was really not amused. I know, that it’s part of the art process that Street Art get damaged or tagged, but in this special case it was sad to see. Luckily I found the life-size wheat-paste showing two hugging women which hasn’t been tagged yet.
