from Balaclava to the beach

This is a selection of the street art that I saw back in February when I walked from Balaclava station to the beach (Melbourne, Australia).

below: Flying eyeballs and one eyed little green guys wearing glasses adorn the wall of an optometrist’s building along with a scientifically correct (and labelled) cross section of the eye.  A great way to advertise your business!

below: Two men merged into one. It looks like the original painting was of a man in grey tones. Then someone came along and added their own version in such a way that original eyes now look through glasses and a moustache obscures the mouth.   He also seems to be wearing a space helmet, or some sort of headwear with antennae.
