There's art in them there streets!

Last week Mdblm & I went to see an exhibition at a small, artist run gallery in Collingwood. The Backwoods Gallery tends to show mainly street art and obscure artists so you'll never know what you'll find. The gallery's most recent exhibition was 'Oriental Elements' by Japanese artists Usugrow and Toshikazu Nozaka. Their work didn't really blow my hair back but this little guy was kinda cute, if you can ignore his skeletal grin.

More exhibition pics & artist bios can be found here

We had a bit of time to kill before the gallery opened so we took a stroll down Easey Street. Collingwood and its surrounding area is known for its street art and I have to say we were more impressed with the work on display in the streets.

This one was a favourite, I think you can see why.
