Historically, we remember street art as a different name; graffiti; a sub-culture of disenfranchised
youth expressing themselves through what many property owners and the government considered

But that perception is changing.
Today we find many business owners and local government allocating areas of their businesses and communities to commissioned street art pieces that bring a level of culture whilst simultaneously reinforcing social acceptance of public street art.

We have seen in recent years, we have seen various street art pieces that highlight or convey messages into the minds of passersby of contemporary social issues; for example, the Real Aussie posters (Seen below) that spark curiosity into the historical involvement of Muslim communities in Australia’s history.

What do you think about Street Art in Australia? Is it an acceptable form of speech to spark curiosity? Share your thoughts below.
