New in Melbourne – Be Free in Degraves St

New in Melbourne - Be Free in Degraves St

I spotted this piece by Be Free in Degraves St the other day. It’s in the same site as my first and favourite Be Free piece, which is sadly now gone: https://helencaldwell.wordpress.com/2012/12/23/art-in-surprising-places/

Art in Surprising Places

I heard a rumour that there was going to be a Shake Your Tail Feather flash mob at Southbank so I headed down there with my friend, Lucy, to check it out. (Youtube video by Miff D)

Afterwards we walked through Southgate Shopping Complex and came across artworks by Be Free. It was one of her colourful little-girl-with-bucket-of-paint paste ups in Degraves Street that started me off photographing street art just over a year ago.

The first piece of Be Free street art I spotted in Melbourne. This can still be seen in Degraves Street but isn't in such good condition any more.

Finally, Lucy and I went for a coffee in Manchester Press. Unfortunately, the amazing coffee foam art I’d been going on and on about was not evident in Lucy’s hot chocolate.
