Bedford, Denison and Alton murals

Bedford St., Denison St. and Alton Lane are all close to Newton train station.  Bedford runs parallel to the train tracks and some of the murals painted there can be seen from the other side of the tracks.

Goddard gallery

In Newtown (Sydney),  Goddard Street is only one small block long.  It runs west from King Street.  The north side of Goddard is the wall of one building and that wall is home to a number of paintings.  Gigi’s Pizza occupies the front part of the building, facing King street, but I’m not sure what else is there.  Most of the paintings are unsigned and I have only been able to find  information about some of them online.

Narrow sidewalks, parked cars and rubbish bins – the bane of photographers taking pictures of street art!

Three street art paintings - two on a wall and one in the middle on a door. On the left is a woman by artist Lucy Lucy, in the middle a person in black, white and blue, and on the right a rabbit like faced creatures, wearing a top hat
