"The graffiti lane in Melbourne blossoms because local governments respect creativity and don't just erase it. Another reason is that artists, graffiti masters opened studios, also have a trendy clothing brand, so that the alleys quickly become the foot of the trendy people, and many photographers come to punch card mad spread, creating the existence of graffiti alleys. To find graffiti lane, a small alley near the Victoria National Gallery, Hosier Lane, is mostly large portraits, with some paintings taking up the whole wall; and graffiti masters are often improvising. Another AC/DC Lane, two blocks away from the alley, also has paintings of different styles on the walls, which are very visual and childish. Also, Union Lane, located in the center of the city, is mostly graffiti; More often, graffiti is reloaded, so every time it comes it is fresh. Because of the social freedom, which has created the graffiti culture in Melbourne, graffiti lanes are full of features. Next time you're looking for a selfie scene, consider these."
