FAIRFIELD INDUSTRIAL AREA

Although Fairfield is a predominantly residential inner city suburb, it does have a small north-eastern pocket, which remains a light industrial area. This is a vestige of the suburb's initial blue-collar roots, now having become thoroughly gentrified on the main.

These photos are from this light industrial area, where I discovered the graffiti shown."Wild Child Artist" commemorating a 20-year anniversary (1988-2008) is particularly prominent. Also illustrated in the mural is A Melbourne public transport train on the Hurstbridge line, which goes through Fairfield.

This post is part of the Monday Murals meme,
and also part of the Blue Monday meme.

  1. Hello Nick,

    I'm not sure, but it looks as if the trash is meant to be part of the "art work." In any case, I love, love, love those blue skies.

    Happy Blue Monday!

  4. The trash fits but it is still not something you like to see!

  6. That is a clever mural with the train coming up out of the ground.

  7. Street artists love industrial zones. All those buildings represent empty canvases. The emerging train looks like it has pushed out the bottom of the wall. Lots of motion. I like that the train car is going opposite the roof line. Thanks, Nick, for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
