Fresh from Hosier Lane, 13th post

The vibe of Hosier is constantly changing. Culture Kings a new store has opened up, smack bang in the middle of the lane-way pumping out pop music and selling the "latest" fashion. The only good part about this is the crowds it brings to Hosier. However the major negative effect is the commodification of the Melbourne street art, graffiti scene. This store is primarily marketing itself on the surrounding painted walls. This is a great example of how capitalism subconsciously infiltrates public space and completely fucks with free unrestricted creative energy. 

Fresh work from Brisbane born artist Sofles.

This artwork is paid for.

  1. Greetings,
    My name is Ann Graf and I am a PhD student in information studies at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I am researching how graffiti art and street art are being documented online. I chose to look at every website linked on the Art Crimes website (, which led me to your site. I have studied what types of information sites like yours are using to organize collections of photographs of graffiti art and street art, such as arranging collections by styles, by surfaces, by types, or by locations.

    Now that I have a list of all the different ways that these sites are organized, I would like to talk to the people who run the sites to see what they have to say about how the photographs of graffiti art and street are organized. I have a limited number of questions that I want to ask, and I would be willing to email them to you, or talk to you on the phone or by Skype.

    The information that I gather from those who run the websites will be added to the information I have already gathered directly from the websites. You will not be mentioned by name in my dissertation and all responses will be kept strictly confidential. All respondents will be anonymized in the data and reporting.

    Would you be willing to talk to me about this? If you are over the age of eighteen (18), and you are comfortable speaking English, how do you prefer to be contacted - by email, by phone, or by Skype? I would like to talk to you in the next week or two, if possible.

    Thank you for your time and consideration. Your participation will enrich my research and will shed light on the ways that graffiti art and street art are being documented and why. I hope that ultimately this will positively impact appreciation for and scholarship on these valuable, highly ephemeral, and often contested art forms.
