On the streets in Launceston: Watcha Looking at?

Love it of hate it street art has been with us since the days of ancient Egypt and Greece. Roman society was particularly creative when political and gender issues arose. Indeed the derogatory term graffiti is derived from Latin. Having looked and walked through some of Melbournes inner city lane in the recent past it is very evident that some of the most creative artists around use walls as thier  canvas. Some of these artists have migrated to galleries and are commanding a lot of respect from the visual arts community and the income that goes with it.
