Brisbane street art walls

Brisbane City Council provides street art walls to foster our city’s creative talent while helping to reduce graffiti on public and private property.

Street art or legal graffiti walls provide public spaces that can be used as a canvas for uncommissioned, legal street art, with the aim of providing opportunities for creative expression and artistic development.

Council is supportive of the local arts industry and growing our creative community. As a modern, vibrant city, Brisbane can accommodate fantastic street art, in the right places, to add to Brisbane’s attractiveness.

Locations

Brisbane's street art walls are located at:

  • Ekibin Park East (north-west wing walls of drainage culvert, Ridge Street overpass), Greenslopes
  • Ekibin Park South (north-western wall of drainage channel, beneath the South East Freeway), Annerley
  • Stanton Road Park (walls of drainage culvert, beneath the Gateway Motorway), Stanton Road, Tingalpa.

Street art wall guidelines

The street art walls are signed, showing the legal street art site area.

Street art that is offensive in nature and has the potential to upset, disturb, threaten, or insult people (such as racist, sexist, discriminatory or graffiti that contains personal details or might incite violence) may be removed.

The site is to be kept clean. Please take spray cans and rubbish with you. Littering is an offence.

Please respect everyone's right to use the site and respect other people's artwork. Artists are encouraged to negotiate how they use the wall among themselves; respect other people's artwork and their right to use them. When looking at where to paint, it is polite to paint over older or damaged sections of the wall wherever possible.

Council reserves the right to change the status of the legal site or make changes to these guidelines at any time.
