Deviant Devonport in Tasmania

Devonport a small regional town in Northern Tasmania of around 20,000 people. Its main claim to fame is the Spirit of Tasmania terminal which enables people to bring their car to the South island. This has got to be one of the smallest Australian towns with graffiti pieces. Under the Bass Hwy Bridge over the Mersey river is a different style of art. Pieces without traditional colours or styles, a different art culture. The main constricting factor for graffiti to proliferate in small towns is a lack of wall space. But also hard to attract that artistic culture which just flourishes in places like Melbourne.
