TOP 10: PIECES | MELBOURNE 2015

Graffiti is not a sport, but it also kind of is. It’s competitive nature makes it seem that way sometimes, but it’s individualistic spirit keeps it away from over analyzation and a ton of pretentiousness. I’ve been wanting to compile lists like this every year, since starting Arty Graffarti, but have found the whole idea… a bit silly and inadvertently arrogant. In saying that, it’s hard to ignore the amount of talent this city brings to the global scene, as many spread them overseas, while others share theirs here. 2015 (as a whole) has been another great year in the Melbourne graffiti scene, and for all it’s beefs, opinions and praises, the majority who put work into it, have been doing this city justice. Condensing hundreds of pieces was a lot more work then I had bargained for, but I hope this list can really do Melbourne proud, as it showcases its diversity, range and savviness to an unbreakable craft. This list is no definitive collection, rather the best of what I found for 2015. There’s a lot of work out there, but i …

TOP 10: GROUP WALLS | MELBOURNE 2015

Every piece of graffiti you see on this site contain a lifetimes worth of influence, containing in itself, a past, present and future from it’s creator. While the internet has become the resource for most graffiti writers, the most fundamental of learning experiences come from shared ones. Every practitioner has their own consistent learning curve to advance (or get blocked) over certain periods of their ongoing process, which can be made easier with a equally experienced counterpart to feed from. It’s because of this, that I decided to honour the shared actions of graffiti through this list, as most live and learn through experiences, but an extra set of hands and minds can only make things better. This list is no definitive collection, rather the best of what I found for 2015. There’s a lot of work out there, I unfortunately can’t keep up with the demand this city brings day in-day out. 10.

TOP 10: STREET ART | MELBOURNE 2015

Street art continues to be at awkward standstill in Melbourne for 2015. It’s a topic I have expressed confusion and disappointment in for the last couple years, with little change towards the positive. That’s not to suggest that any change should be made, due to yours truly, but the wave we’re currently stuck in hasn’t been pushing us, to where we should be, for some time. With a number of this cities best street artists finding extended success overseas, only a handful have filled the void they once occupied. And despite all of this, there is still great public art to be found across the Melbourne outdoors, with this list featuring a loaf of artists who predominately practise graffiti. But to suggest that street art is truly “art in the streets” then, the idea of who does what, isn’t so far fetched. Melbourne’s graffiti writers have extended their skills over the last 5 years in particular, stretching their craft into form outside of letters, giving those who question their ability, a lot to be accounted for. This list is no definitive collection, rather the …

TOP 10: VIDEOS | 2015

The short form video has become an integral part of the global graffiti and street art scene, whether it be from Melbourne, Iceland or anywhere in between. While there are a ton of websites, just like this one, curating and sharing the best of the best public arts found from around the world, the video is the best way to get noticed on an even broader scale. With a mixture of amateur and professional videographers spreading more vandalism and art then ever before, it’s only fitting to compile 10 of the best found throughout the end of this mid-decade point. Anyone can make a video today, but creating an engaging and interesting piece is getting harder with all the other distractions found at our fingertips, with these 10 being some of the best. It should be noted that all the video’s found throughout this website are highly curated and have been on Arty Graffarti for a reason, defiantly positive. 10.
