What do PPI and street art have to do with each other? Nothing at all really except that our wonderful team at our Head Office in Melbourne was treated to a different kind of “End of Year Party”. They attended a walking tour in an edgy city fringe suburb of Melbourne, Fitzroy, where they were educated on the detail, skill and surprisingly high income to be earned in the art of…well…. “street art”.
Some may view this as a form of vandalism and sure, as we saw, there was a lot of that. But around unexpected corners and up dingy alleys can be seen the loveliest and also the darkest kinds of art. This art is being viewed as iconic Melbourne more and more these days though most Melbournians drive past these elaborate paintings daily without taking much notice.
The team thoroughly enjoyed exploring the weird and wonderful array of designs and streets and finished the day off with a very “American style burger” kind of dinner in a most unlikely setting, a decommissioned train carriage that was propped up amongst two other carriages on top of a building in Easey Street!
