Melbourne is well known for the quality, variety and sheer beauty of its Street Art. I was aware of the fact that Meeting of Styles had been in Melbourne just recently, the first time in Australia and I was keen to see the results of the event. Unfortunately there isn't much information on the artwork and site locations so instead I found myself wandering around Collingwood, an inner city suburb of Melbourne.
What a fantastic location to experience some of Melbourne's Street Art and one of the first was a tiny lane, that lead to a row of garages, containing some beautiful work by Hiroyasu Tsuri (aka TWOONE).
I took some iPhone shots, so I could remember the location by using the GPS and decided to come back, early the next morning to shoot it. At 5:30am, just before sunrise, I walked to the back of the alley to find it lit by a single overhead lamp. I don't know the name of the artwork so I'm calling it Crouching Dog, but I'd love to know its real name if anyone can help me.
As you move back toward the street, in the centre of the wall, is Sitting Beast

"Hiroyasu Tsuri aka TWOONE was born in Yokohama, Japan. At age of 18 he moved to Melbourne, Australia. He is currently living and working in Melbourne. Drawing and crafting have been a part of his life for as long as he can remember. He gained an early interest in art though skate board graphics and graffiti culture.
As soon as Hiroyasu moved to Melbourne, he started showing his works on the street, and inside galleries.
In 2008 he had hand painted one thousand individual spray cans, and had his first solo exhibition “One Thousand Can Show”.
Since then He has been creating large number of works in field of painting, murals, sculpture, installation and live performances."
