Darlinghurst, murals

"We Are Here" is a 15-metre-high, 75-metre-long mural in the inner city suburb of Darlinghurst. It is on the rear façade of the old Oxford Street Municipal Chambers along Foley Street, between Palmer Street and Crown Street and incorporates the brickwork, doors, ducts, pipes, bars and grilles. 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, neon lights and photography.

  1. Quite a mural though you could also call it graffiti

    1. Yuk, Jim. That’s a really interesting building now spoiled by the equivalent of a tattoo.

    2. Although, it is much better than the graffiti the laneway usually attracts.

  5. Such murals are amazing...collaborative effort of artists. Am sure it brings a sense of community perhaps for some who had not felt so connected before. Thank you for sharing with us. I get to see worldwide images from Blue Monday ♥

  6. A multimedia mural? Cool. Wish I could see more details. The size alone is impressive. I bet "Meet you at the mural corner" now trips off the tongues of the folks in the neighborhood. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

    1. I'm going to try and get a photo at night when the neon lights are on.

  7. I love building murals...never quite thought of them as building tattoos!
