Burn City: Melbourne's Painted Streets

Author(s): Lou Chamberlin

Art and Design

Melbourne - aka 'Burn City' - is internationally renowned for its street art. For more than twelve years Lou Chamberlin has been photographing its painted streets, capturing the most memorable pieces of this ephemeral art form and creating an ongoing record of the city's robust street subculture. These pages showcase the best of the city, including the 'burners' - the pieces so hot they're 'burning' off the wall.
