Street art around Melbourne

Do you remember seeing the following Google Doodle on the 4th of May?

For some reason, something about this image looked really familiar to me. A few minutes of searching on Google and I figured out why. Check this out!

This mural by Keith Haring is just a 3 minute 37 second walk from where I am currently living. (Yes, I timed myself!)

There is a lot of street art around Melbourne! Near the bottom of my post on the Melbourne Welcome is a picture of me standing in front of a very colorfully-decorated laneway in the city centre. Collingwood, where Haring's Mural is located and where I live, happens to filled with street art. So after the Google Doodle gave me inspiration for this blog entry, I decided to walk around a little bit to take pictures of different ones.

From Haring's mural, you only need to walk a little bit to find another work of art!
Here's a cute cartoon-y one!
And here's another drawing!

There's so much variety in the subject/theme of the art and in the style. I wonder what inspires people to draw all of these. I pass by so much art on the way to Melbourne Uni that I don't really think about it much anymore, but it really gives this area a young and vibrant feel. I like it!
