CITY LIM­ITS

Street art is now a le­git­i­mate and much lauded form of artis­tic ex­pres­sion; it is also in­creas­ingly be­com­ing a tourist at­trac­tion in its own right in cities around the world, in­clud­ing Mel­bourne. From the city’s nar­row paint-daubed al­ley­ways to mam­moth mu­rals in­ject­ing colour and so­cial com­men­tary into the streetscapes of the sub­urbs, the Vic­to­rian cap­i­tal is an in­cu­ba­tor for spray can in­spi­ra­tion. Pho­tog­ra­pher Lou Cham­ber­lin has been cap­tur­ing its painted streets for 12 years, com­mit­ting to pos­ter­ity this ephemeral art form. Her images and thoughts are gath­ered to­gether in Burn City (Hardie Grant, $29.99), the per­fect guide to get­ting out and find­ing some of this ex­u­ber­ant art for your­self.
