Darlinghurst, murals

These artworks are part of "We Are Here", a 15-metre-high, 75-metre-long mural lining the walls of buildings along Foley Street, a laneway in the inner city suburb of Darlinghurst. This giant artwork which was created by Australian street artists, illustrators and photographers, depicts some of the city’s most significant people and events using paint, collage, drawing, paste-ups, stencils and photography.

  1. I have walked Foley Street for it many fire-escapes, but it must have been prior to the arrival of this mural, Jim. The building it is on reminds me of buildings just down a bit further in Yurong Lane. Makes me miss my old haunts.

  2. Whimsical and colorful. I especially like the head with the fireman's hat on.

  4. Wow, what a fantastic mural. The style seems to be a paen to Magritte and the surrealist movement. They would be impressed by the scale of this project. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
