Graffiti artists are faceless and anonymous by necessity. They hide behind a tag. The Sydney Graffiti art in the Newtown area consists of a variety of styles and methods of execution, including large-scale murals, hand-painted political slogans, hand-painted figurative designs, spray painted semi-abstract designs and stencil art. Newtown is the best place to check out impressive mural work by local and internationally famed street artists. Some of the works have been on walls for decades, while the paste ups and stencils change from week to week.
