Abbeville Gallery: Australia

One might expect Australian graffiti to consist largely of cheeky, offbeat swear words and cartoon drawings of wallabies, but apparently, the country’s urban artists have a taste for abstraction. Such has been the discovery of Arbiter of Style Lauren, who is visiting Melbourne (that’s “Melbin”) this month and who has provided us two new photographs for our Abbeville Gallery series:

We like how, especially in the second photo, Lauren’s turned the decorated buildings into abstract compositions of her own. But we’re really bowled over by the graffiti itself, which is better than anything we’ve seen here in the city lately. (Yes, even in Williamsburg.) Who knew that Australia, along with being a bestiary of crazy creatures, was such a haven of style?
