But what do the numbers mean? Street Art

By 3 January 2014

This in from Owen:
A relatively new piece of graffiti under the bridge over Ginninderra Ck.

The Nature of the Monkey was… Irrepressible!

By 31 December 2013

As seen in O’Connor this afternoon, I gather they’re up all around Canberra.

They informed me [...]

Local street art legend ELK has been given a free kick by the makers of poker machines Aristocrat entertainment.

Someone’s been busy in Sullivans Creek

By 18 August 2012

I’m not saying Luke Chiswell has been busy beautifying parts of Sullivan’s Creek.
But I am saying someone who likes his style has.

For comparison here’s me awarding myself the Mully Cup in a T-Shirt personally bought from Luke.

Street art in Garema Place. Glad wrapping poles

By 25 June 2012

I was walking through Garema Place today and, unsurprisingly, I saw something a bit odd. There was a man just casually wrapping some cling film around two poles outside of Impact Comics. I’ve seen quite a few strange things at Garema and I decided to stick this one out, to see if he was going [...]

No Archibald for ELK

By 30 March 2012

A couple of weeks ago we were very excited by local stencil artist ELK’s shortlisting for the Archibald Prize.
This afternoon he’s facebooked that he hasn’t won the prize.

Each letter is marked with a [...]

Very cheeky stencil art. Images of Canberra

DarkLadyWolf has sent in this picture from under the bridge where the Tuggeranong Parkway passes over Heysen Street, Weston.
