On the Street, Melbourne Australia

Pavement artist

Artist Frank Cuming uses Swanston Street, Melbourne, Australia as his inspiration, canvas and a source of income. His specialty is pastel replicas of the Great Masters.

Frank travels regularly from his home in the Dandenongs into the city to tape his canvas to the sidewalk. People stop, admire, and drop coins into the bucket that is inscribed "Thankyou".

Salvador Dali, Rembrandt and Michelangelo are all there. You don't need to visit the art gallery. You can simply admire Frank's skilled hand replicate the ancient subtleties of line and colour.

Another event on the street -
this time Little Burke Street
and Chinatown.
Chinese New Year is celebrated
with fireworks, dragons, parades
and good food.

And the mall in Burke Street has its collection of guitar players, balloon blowers, and those who just stand still for a living.

And down at St Kilda the annual festival attracts more crowds than the footy to celebrate being alive.

And why not?

And if you make an exhibition of yourself, you might even collect a few coins.
