Australia Post is releasing a stamp issue on street art, featuring four vibrant large-scale works painted in the streets of Melbourne and Adelaide by internationally respected artists.

Australia Post Philatelic Manager Michael Zsolt said:

“Australia is known as one of the world’s great locations for high-quality street art. Melbourne, in particular, is renowned for the many and varied works featured in its small laneways, as well as more prominent locations, often as part of official commissions. Many people appreciate these works of art as making an important contribution to a vibrant urban culture.”

The four domestic base-rate ($1) stamps were designed by John White of the Australia Post Design Studio:

Mural by Adnate
Portrait by Vans the Omega
Forever curious by Rone and Phibs
Shinka by Fin DAC
