Inner City Legal Wall

i painted there.. it's a low key wall.. i guess it's not completely legal but you can paint there if you are comfortable with painting a busy alley with lots of people to see you.. it like a block away from the melbourne museum.. the graffiti covers the whole alley including an entire outside of a building with in the alley. awesome artistic place..

if its with permission, its legal. fuckwit.

just go for it

Hosier Lane is not legal. Hosier Lane has never been legal. Hosier Lane is privately commissioned. If you have not been commissioned, then don't paint there. This is not a place to learn to paint. If you don't understand and respect, you will be asked to leave, and police may be called. No toys, no slashing, no dickheads, no arguments.

Admins, this listing should be removed. Hosier Lane is not legal.

I just visited there in September on my vacation to Melbourne. The alley is well done and very popular. Here are the photos I took that I posted to my Flickr [flickr.com/photos/26617355@N02/sets/72157625109834235/]. Full resolution, feel free to download them for wallpapers if you like.

It´s not actually fully legal but seriously nobody takes offence there, it´s probably one of melbourne´s most visited sights and most iconic laneways. Hundreds of tourists there every day taking flix, never ever had a problem painting there although some old bitch who´s running a gallery there told me that you have to be comissioned to paint there...

theres a guy called andi...he ownes a gallery or smth like that in the hosier lane...he can give you permission. i painted there 3 times, always asked him and never had a problem. maybe some people in a restaurant feel bothered by the paint...you just have to check if its open the time you wanna paint...otherwise it should be cool...but well..just ask somebody there for andi and you should be fine!

Here is a collection of shots from the Lanes of Melbourne including Hosier, ACDC and Union for anyone interested in checking them out: flickr.com/photos/chasingghosts/sets/72157626898221732 Cheers, Chasing Ghosts.

It's all legal to paint

It’s never been legal to paint here, people just started painting there because the police didn’t use to be able to catch people doing it. Now there’s security cameras everywhere and lots of people have been getting fines, going to juvenile detention centres and even jail for quite a long time. Get written permission with a confirmed design woth the owner of the wall/building or you will get in a lot of trouble.

Is this wall still safe to paint?
