Street Art of the Inner West
by Melinda Vassallo

Street Art of Sydney's Inner West

Overview

Sydney’s Inner West has some of the best examples of street art in Australia. Yet many landmark street art pieces have disappeared in a time of intense highdensity housing construction and renovation.

Street Art of Sydney’s Inner West a pictorial reference book is a celebration of twenty years of street art, the artists who create it and the residents who love it.

Meet the characters behind the tags in their own words and their art. Street Art varies from the iconic “I have a Dream” mural on King Street Newtown, to stencils, paste-ups and sculpture.

All hold cultural and social significance to an area gradually being ‘cleaned up’. Just as common as the street art itself are the residents who appreciate it.
