The turns of Croft Alley, off Little Bourke Street, Melbourne, right in the heart of Chinatown, is a treasure trove of street art. It changes so regularly that it is always worth a wander down past all the bins from the restaurants and towards the Croft Institute, just to see what's new.
The octopus radio at the top of this post was once where the green and silver Beauty was late last year and into some of this year. When I took these shots, there were artists at work on a section of backwall, creating a new piece for us all to find.
But whilst there is a constant change among this canvas, there is also a code of respect within the artists. Many of these pieces here have been up, and left to be admired now, for some months.
