About May Lane Street Art Project
The May Lane Project is an outdoor street art gallery space located in St Peters, in Sydney's inner west. Founded by Graphic Art Mount in 2005 an initiative of Tugi Balog who runs Graphic Art Mount together with his partner Dianna Balog. Tugi and Dianna transformed the exterior walls of the studio into a site-specific gallery for street artists which later was adapted to the lane.
The exhibition presents a selection of large scale street art, created at May Lane between 2005 and 2009 by legendary Australian graffiti artists and celebrated international street artists.
Vibrant, dramatic and confronting, the May Lane work spans a range of street art styles, from New York graffiti, spray paint and paste ups, to stencils and sculpture.
