The Melbourne Street Art Guide is the essential reference to the who, what, why and where of Melbourne’s dynamic street-art scene. Focused on the art, politics, people and places which make Melbourne an undisputed international hotspot for street art and graffiti, this highly-illustrated book delves into the inner worlds of the artist, collector and curator to provide a holistic picture of contemporary Melbourne street art practice today.

Maps with street art hotspots plus self-guided tours reveal where to go and what to see, while short essays, interviews and profiles provide an invaluable set of tools for any street-art connoisseur to decipher and interpret the richly layered terrain of the city’s streets. This book takes readers on a memorable journey into the heart of this important and, at times, misunderstood artistic realm.
