Australia has a side to it, an artistic side that not many people know of. But if you are ready to explore the art scene of Melbourne, Australia, read on!
The National Gallery of Victoria
Begin your journey at the iconic National Gallery of Victoria, which is the oldest public art museum in Australia. If you are staying at Avani Melbourne Box Hill Residences or a similar Box Hill hotel in the area, make sure you walk through and view the immense collection here that spans centuries and continents.
The Street Art in Fitzroy
Walk around the neighbourhood of Fitzroy, and while you do, you will see many street art exhibits that take over the laneways and buildings. Make sure you walk down Brunswick Street, Gertrude Street, and their surrounding lanes to see an open-air gallery of vibrant murals, stencil art, and awe-inspiring graffiti.
Australian Centre for the Moving Image
Like the name suggests, here is where you can learn everything you possibly can about the subject of Aussie art, film, and digital culture.
The Hidden Galleries and Artist Studios
Now, this is not common knowledge, but if you walk away from the regular path, you can discover intimate galleries, artist-run spaces, and creative hubs. At these places, you will be able to speak to local artists, see their creative process in action, and have the opportunity to buy unique artworks directly from the source.
