So much to see...so little time to see it all.

Artists are changing the face of boring bland buildings
There's an art renaissance taking place in Liverpool. Street art that is. All around town, blank walls have become large canvases for Liverpool's young budding artists. Make no mistake, this is not mindless graffiti with meaningless tags. This is all legal, state sponsored, local government managed art and some of it is pretty impressive. They are often big in scale, big on style and imagination. The works are so impressive that one of the artists will feature in a forthcoming exhibition at the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre

The Liverpool's Living Streets program has engaged local and Sydney artists to spray some colour on what would otherwise be a boring brick or concrete wall. Many of the works are in out of the way corner stores or park toilet blocks. Many schools have embraced the movement to brighten up dull school room walls while dark, dank council car parks and walkway tunnels have also received the street art treatment.

Here is my very subjective selection of 12 of my favourite works dotted around Liverpool and surrounding suburbs.
