The Croft Alley has received thousands of pieces, tags, stickers, stencils, paste ups and everything else thrown at it over the last few years, so its hardly surprising to see the entire lane painted from head to toe from time to time. Many crews have given it a red hot go with the most recent being from the visiting Ironlak Family, alongside a couple of their spray painting compadres. There’s a pretty solid representation of Melbourne and Brisbane here, with crews such as F1, SDM, AWOL, MR, RDC, Flies, MSA and DTS all representing in one way or another, along with the travelling COD’s Wane in superhero guise.

The New York City scene of the late 70s and 80s pretty much wrote the text-book on graffiti as we’ve since and ’til today, it wouldn’t be what it is without that period. It’s a very rare thing to have a collection of writers and artists in a group show such as this and it’s an even rarer thing to have it in Australia, but Rtist have brought them together to display some of their work and it’s certainly a treat for those who love the art form and its history. While I love them for their variety, I feel that I’m not so good at covering group shows, there’s usually so much going on and so much to look at, that the overall meaning of the show gets mixed up amongst the multiple artists expressing different things. This show, I didn’t feel as much, I don’t think …
