Adelaide isn’t known for its street art. Our walls don’t drip like Hosier Lane, Kreuzberg or Belleville but it is there – subtle, intricate and hidden – if you go looking for it.

This weekend’s Wonderwalls Festival in Port Adelaide may be a game changer. After only one day the power of this work is making itself felt and in an obvious way. Walls are being colonized with wonder, colour is covering unassuming brick and tonight the streets were full of people. Watching over this, on the west facing wall of an abandoned 1980s monolith, Etam Cru are creating a portrait of epic proportions. Adelaide, we don’t need to go looking for our street art any more.

What we do need is more of this. Let’s draw on every one of our walls and etch stories into the mortar of this city.
