Keen for some new laneways to explore? Look no further. Sunshine Lane in Brunswick is one of the best laneways for checking out some killer street art, stencil art and graffiti. Conveniently located off Lygon Street, the laneway boasts a 5 star review on Google, so you know you can’t go wrong.
Supported and documented by local factory owner, Dean Sunshine, the lane is a canvas for some of the best domestic and international street artists. The artworks are updated occasionally and in the last few weeks a new piece from Jimmy C has contemplated itself onto the walls. This celestial, orbital, spherical dreamscape almost makes you question your place in the universe.
The infamous ‘karma sutra burger’ is alas no more, however UK artist and creator of urban aesthetics FIN DAC has created this awe-inspiring mural called ‘Wajahbaru’ in its place. Make sure to check out the beading, as it is painstakingly detailed and extremely pleasing to the eye.
This is an easy space to find, located just off Lygon Street, you can catch the tram up from the city on routes 1 and 6. Jump off at Victoria Street and walk down to Anne Street for the full effect.
If all this street art makes you hungry, just check out Alishas Cafe Collective for a great value vegetarian feed and make sure you walk past the mural on the side of the cafe. There are a host of other fantastic bars and restaurants near by as well. Don’t be shy, get curious and go see for yourself.
