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 of 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.


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 created at May Lane between 2005 and 2009 by legendary Australian graffiti artists and celebrated international street artists.
