As you walk down the street in cities and towns across Australia from Perth to Benalla, Toowoomba to Melbourne, you might stumble across a seven-storey-high painting of a woman's face on a building; a giant echnida painted onto a wall; a tiny paste-up on the back of a telegraph pole. This glimpse of art on an otherwise dull street both transports and intrigues you: who was the artist? What is the story behind the painting?

Street art photographer Lou Chamberlin is following on from the success of her book Street Art: Melbourne with Street Art: Australia, a celebration of street art across the country, featuring the art, artists and collaborations who have shaped the street art scene in Australia over the past 10 years. You might find some recognisable artists and faces in the book, as Lou takes us, lens by lens, on an epic journey across the most exciting art in the country.

About the Author

Lou Chamberlin is an artist, author and arts educator. She has been teaching and writing about art and artists for children and young adults for 20 years and has created artists' books for the last 10 years. Her interest in street art has been fuelled by living and working in Melbourne with its vibrant and ever-changing street art scene. She has also researched and prepared photo-documentation of the street art of Rio de Janeiro and Valparaiso. The photographs in this book were taken between May 2005 and March 2013.


Not that great


This book is nothing more than a record taking of streetart by photographing walls with very little imagination and creativity. All of these photos can be found on Instagram or the internet. There are no surprises as all the artwork can be found on the the author's instagram account. Very disappointing.
