Anyone who’s walked through the streets of Sydney or Melbourne knows the how prolific the Australian street art scene is. That’s why Soap Creative in Sydney have released Taggr, a free iPhone app that allows you to view, find, upload and geo-tag art from the streets of Sydney and Melbourne. Now anyone from around the world can view the urban creativity that is and was in these two fine cities.
We’re seeing a retaliation from young artists who find the environment and politics of galleries to be a juxtaposition to the meaning and target audience of their work. Creative agency, Buzz Products, has helped bring contemporary art into the everyday through a collaboration with Drab. The exterior of their Melbourne headquarters provided the perfect canvas for Australia’s largest paste-up.
