A common stereotype of Spanish culture A common stereotype of Spanish culture Sara Bosch

Graffiti is a famous type of public art in Melbourne laneways. This one is placed on the side of the Casa Iberica Deli in Fitzroy, and represents a Spanish gyspy and flamenco dancer, a common stereotype of Spanish culture.

Spanish restaurants around the city, commision some artists to paint the side or the front of their venues, making them ever changing experiences. So if you happen to not visit your Spanish favourite bar in a while, you might find a different look when you come back.

We will soon be posting here an image gallery of the evolution of this graffiti art in the city.

Let us know where have you found some graffiti either Spanish inspired or related to a Spanish shop, bar or others via email, Facebook, Twitter... So many options!
