Tasmania the "state of art"

Tasmania's graffiti dynamic is complex and diverse. Its geographical isolation is a driving force for new styles and concepts. Sure we may live in the age of technology where the internet is at our fingertips, but artists tend to follow and watch their own local scene. Devonport absorbs (probably because of the Spirit of Tasmania) a significant amount of artwork for the towns size. Launceston is a very progressive graffiti/street art town with the longest official legal wall I have ever seen. Hobart sits down near the bottom with a inner city graffiti scene which would rival much bigger Sydney. Tasmania probably has the highest graffiti to population ratio of any state in Australia.
