Graffiti art from the streets of North Melbourne.
North Melbourne is a changing precinct with an interesting mix of inhabitants. There are are long-time residents and newer ones, transients and students. This slice of Melbourne on the fringe of the CBD comprises residential houses, units and converted warehouses, commercial and light industrial buildings and recreational spaces.
A growing number of cafés mark the trend towards gentrification that pushes rents up and people out. You need not go far to find street art though, where the gritty and the pretty coexist.
