Melbourne’s Street Art Evolution: Crate Man

Melbourne’s Street Art Evolution: Crate Man

'Crate Man' is another great example of Melbourne's diverse street art scene. Constructed from vibrantly painted milk crates, the huge figures have been found scaling fences, hanging off cranes, perched on rooftops and even fishing in a creek.

‘Crate Man’ is another great example of Melbourne’s diverse street art scene. Constructed from vibrantly painted milk crates, the huge figures have been found scaling fences, hanging off cranes, perched on rooftops and even fishing in a creek. Generally positioned within viewing distance of freeways or railway lines; Crate Man’s creator/s is still a mystery, alth0ugh Street Editors blogger Yen Trinh claims the crate figures are the work of “the mysterious Sam, Jerome, Ed and Gab.”  In January 2009 Crate Man was covered by Victorian newspaper The Age, but the official Crate Man fan site  suggests the figures have been appearing in and around Melbourne’s streets as early as 2006. The Age believes Crate Man is just another answer to the Victorian State Government’s “hard-line graffiti laws.”
