HOSIER LANE GRAFFITI

Hosier Lane is a bluestone cobbled vehicular and pedestrian laneway on the southern edge of the central city grid of Melbourne, Australia. Hosier Lane is a much celebrated landmark in Melbourne mainly due to its sophisticated urban art.

Hosier Lane lies opposite the entrance to the Atrium at Federation Square on Flinders St, a prominent position in the city.The lane has been noted for the quality and the often political nature of its art It features in the state-sponsored book "The Melbourne Design Guide" and in Tourism Victoria's "Lose Yourself in Melbourne" advertising campaign, leading to questions about the dichotomy of Victoria's approach to graffiti. The graffiti-covered walls and art-installations have become a popular backdrop for fashion and wedding photography.
