"Where is a good spot in Melbourne to see good street art? We have visitors coming from overseas and would like to take them sight seeing..."

My mind goes into overdrive every time i get this question!

The other question I get quite often is - 'What is your favourite mural?"

Considering there are so many incredible artists our there these days and the fact that we are absolutely spoilt when it comes to the calibre of street art in Australia, there is no easy answer to either of these questions.

So this story is my attempt to share with you some of my favourite street art finds I've had the pleasure of seeing in person. I hope you love them as much as I do!

Melbourne Polytechnic - Prahran

Guido van Helten's 2016 seven-storey mural of profoundly deaf contemporary dancer Anna Seymour. Try standing in front of this and not get goosebumbs!
