Collingwood is raw. Like London’s East End, it’s rough around the edges. A mix of quirky locals and Melbourne’s ‘early adopters of things different’. It’s inspirational, if not at times trying. It’s up close and it’s individual. Everyday there are new inscriptions on the walls that hold this suburb up.

Although we acknowledge a fine line between graffiti and art, we thought we would share some of the pieces that took our eye this year. Some new, some old, some now gone. But all Collingwood.
