Street art finding its mark in outdoor festival

The Brisbane Street Art Festival offers a jam-packed 16-day festival with an impressive range of murals, installations and workshops.

Brisbane appears to be brimming over with street art. Depending on where you are in the city, it seems that on every street corner, there’s a wall mural or a street sculpture, artworks that double as benches or seating, and a whole variety of small to medium installations.

Fortitude Valley has several unique murals including at The Constance, formerly Tryp, Brisbane’s only street art hotel. West End village and South Brisbane, especially Fish Lane, which emulates Melbourne for its distinctive laneway art and murals, are strongly focused on street art and murals.
