Melbourne's street art of a boy and girl skipping and holding hands

What Melbourne’s Street Art says about Love

by Nicole on February 12, 2012

“I’ve got a mind full of her…”

Art of any type is an expression of emotion regardless of whether it be displayed in galleries, at home, or on the streets. When visiting Melbourne’s lane ways, where much of the cities street art can be found, I was surprised to find a huge amount of art expressing love – falling in or out – and as a special Valentines Day treat I thought I’d share it with you.

Love these! Great eye for them! Love the Keep Me In Your (anatomical heart), ha!

Haha yeah the anatomical heart and heart broken ones are my favourite. There’s tons of similar ones around the city so when you’re in the city next keep your eyes out!

I’m a sucker for romantic street art. One of my favorites is on Nobby’s Headland in Newcastle. Very sweet.

I haven’t seen Nobby’s Headland (actually, I haven’t been to Newcastle yet – it will happen!)

I know this comment is late but never mind. I visited Melbourne a couple of years ago at the end of a three month backpacking trip and just fell in love and I’m now planning to move there for 6-12 months on a working holiday visa! I didn’t get a proper chance to take in the amazing graffiti properly so I can’t wait to get back there, I fly out in November. I too am bitten by the travel bug and I find your blog so inspiring – it makes me certain that I’m doing the right thing 🙂
