Byron Bay Street Art

Despite being able to fill this entry with lots of street art radness we did have to hunt it out, it's not that Byron bay doesn't have a street art culture it's just a lot of it has an advertising spin. It seems like a welcoming place for expression but I think it could be taken even further on an artistic level :) I'll let the photos do the talking and perhaps they tell a different tale!



























And that concludes the byron posts!

Thanks Byron for showing us a good time - we'll definitely be back again :)

    1. I used to be crazy afraid - like heart palpitations, sweats, trembles, crying if I got to close to any huntsmen (had one bad experience that set me off) and now although not 100% cured I can get pretty close without those things happening

    1. giraffe! I hope it lives for a while on the streets - ceramic pieces don't tend to last long.

    These photos are gorgeous though. I miss Byron so much, haven't been there in 5 years now.

    1. As someone that used to be deathly afraid of spiders I can relate.
      I think before this visit it had been 6-7 years since I had last visited - so it was definitely due :)

  11. I almost cried seeing that spider. Somebody's a fantastic artist!

  12. Do I spot two of Ben's tiles? Were these added during your trip (I read that it was Ben's first time at Byron in your first post, so I can guess the answer is yes?) Love that he added his own part to the street art. Oh and that whale is my favorite.
