I’ve had a couple of “WTF Wow!” moments recently where I’ve encountered street art (graffiti, aerosol art) in either unexpected places (such as Brisbane’s way-outer suburb, Victoria Point*) or with unexpected content (such as the bondage manga girls in Newtown).
I not only love the disruptions these two pieces had in my city wanderings, but also the work is stunning.
So You Think You Can Graff, Victoria Point, Brisbane.
Apparently, So You Think You Can Graff was a collaboration by Sofles and Mystik.
Bondage Manga Girls, Newtown, Sydney.
Okay, I shouldn’t be surprised to find an image like this adorning a wall on a King St corner in Newtown… Newtown is the home of amazing street art, pop culture and urban dykes… but I was. Sure, pages could be written on its representation of women etc but but I just really appreciate its double-take powers…
(If you know who sprayed the manga girls, let me know so I can credit it.)
*Yeah, yeah… I know Victoria Point is not a Brisbane suburb but for the sake of geographical clarity we will just say it is for the moment.
