Archive for the ‘Mary Lane’ tag
This linocut kid holding a spray can is up on the corner of Jesmond and Crown Streets, next to the Blank Space gallery.
On the other side of Jesmond Street, this sticker covers a Telstra box – a comment on Telstra’s practices, a general comment about telecommunications/electrical infrastructure, or just a random surface to paste something on?
This spaceman is near the corner of Mary Lane and Albion Way, Surry Hills.
Paste ups occupy pretty much the same spot in the hierarchy of street art as tags. Quick to get up on a wall, and often barely sketched out, they rarely rise above their function.
For a while the only creative, really original paste ups we saw were from Jumbo and Zap. They’ve been quiet, so it’s good to see new characters pop up.
