artist paper paste-ups

Paste-ups seen on Artist Lane, Windsor (Melbourne) this past weekend.

Artist Lane runs parallel to Chapel St. between Green and Union streets, just north of Windsor station.   It has the highest concentration of good street art that I have seen yet in Melbourne.  I have too many pictures for one blog post.  As a result, have divided it up into sections, paste-ups (paper), stencils, and paintings.  Here are the paste-ups.

I wonder what time the alarm is set for?

below: The snail is printed on scrap paper?  or is there significance to the fact that the original purpose of the paper was information about Julius Baer, a Swiss private financial company, and EMA Partners, a company that matches executives with international companies, also based in Switzerland.
