    There is so much amazing street art around now, Melbourne here in Australia is becoming a major location for artists but councils still don’t seem to embrace the concept, even in Melbourne work by Banksy has been destroyed. I believe Blek le Rat was recently in Melbourne doing work with local stencil artists. Street art seems filled with ideas, it is immediate and exciting.
