I really started noticing street art in Yogya flourishing around 2005/2006 – after the political upheaval of reformasi and the city needing to rebuild itself and its spirit after the earthquake in 2006.
It’s one of those things that really does make Yogya feel like a spiritual twin to Melbourne.
This is a 21 minute long program looking at a few street artists working in Yogyakarta.

I have a dump of all my photos of art I saw on the streets of Yogya.
