Art Collective On Vacation: Melbourne Street Art- Part 1

Sorry for the lack in posts lately, end of university semester fell upon us way too fast! But now that it's over we have no excuse! The street art exhibition, Space Invaders is now open at the Australian National Gallery (stay tuned for a review), so I decided to check out some of the street art that adorns Melbourne's alleyways. However I constantly found myself pointing to a paste up or stencil, and saying to my friend, "he's in the national is he." It's a bit of a weird feeling seeing street art that is now apart of the Australian Gallery's collection, and I couldn't help but wonder how long is it going to stay there?
