Newtown Area Graffiti And Street Art

Since the 1980s, the area around the historic Sydney suburb of Newtown, NSW - including the outskirts of Newtown, Enmore, Erskineville, Camperdown and St. Peters - already have a work of graffiti and "street art" is placed on local walls.

These works range in many styles and methods of operation. They include a number of large-scale murals, political slogans painted by hand, figurative designs hand-painted, semi-abstract design of a spray-painted, and the development of styles such as stencil and graffiti art posters (also known as "wheatpasting").
