things like this give beige a bad name

The old Woolworths building in the heart of Darwin city has been closed and empty for several years. S-All Good, they built a new woolies around the corner and the long expanse of wall and window have become used by local and traveling street artist. It's a big part of the city scene and goes so well with the massive amounts of young backpackers that flow through the place. But now we have a newly elected council the walls got painted beige (things like this give beige a bad name). I know it's not to everyone's taste but over the years there has been some brilliant work and I thought it was cool when occasionally the artist would leave a 'thanks Darwin' message with their work. Luckily I got these photos a few months ago.





I did drive past last weekend and it is very beige and actually sticks out like a sore thumb. There has been several write ups but no one seems to be able to get a straight answer on why. Just sham, shame, shame.

Enjoy x Luna
