Technically, graffiti is considered to be drawings, paintings, or other markings on surfaces in public places. The Writing on the Wall gangs use as their street “telegraph,” sending messages about turf and advertising their exploits. Graffiti identifies territorial boundaries, lists members, and communicates threats to rival gangs. Each year millions of dollars are spent to clean up graffiti.

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.
