re:treat | melbourne street art

My friend Michael Bermudez had the best response to the recession–move to Australia.  Michael has been my Aussie design scout, and this week’s gift was a set of photos of  Melbourne street art.  In the “news to me” category, Melbourne street art is a big deal. Even a travel destination, according to the LA Times.  Graffiti artists are actually encouraged and often commissioned by businesses around Melbourne.

Most of Michael’s photos were taken along Brunswick Street in the suburb of Fitzroy.


All photos by Michael Bermudez.

More on Melbourne Street art here and here.  Michael was also my source for the post on Rhett Dashwood’s Google Map alphabet,  and the Mankind is No Island video.

    What I like is the ones that show a blow up capsule you are supposed to seal your baby in while you put on your life vest.

    I think they called it an “emergency cot” of something on British Airlines.

    I wonder how many of those are ever used?
