Recently, when asked a question about the large graffiti piece that was completed last year or the year before in Police lane in Geelong. I was unable to inform the person enquiring who had undertaken the work. So after searching online and finding out it was not to be found easily. I searched the City of Greater Geelong’s Arts site and the public art section, but again it was not to be found. Considering it was a legal artwork i figured i should do a bit more research and put a name to the artwork and document it as street art by its very nature is often temporary.

Anyway, after a little more effort the artwork is by a Perth artist named Stormie Mills. It was commissioned by the Courthouse Youth Arts Centre and placed on the wall of the Geelong Performing Arts Centre. The title of the work is, ” If you want your children to dance, why do you tie their toes together “. (Dec 2008)
