The May Lane Project is an outdoor gallery space located in St Peters, in Sydney’s inner west. The project commenced in 2005 as an initiative of Tugi Balog, a local businessman who turned the exterior walls of his business premises into a site-specific gallery for street artists.

The exhibition presents a selection of large scale street art, created at May Lane between 2005 and 2009 by legendary Australian graffiti artists and celebrated international street artists.

Vibrant, dramatic and confronting, the May Lane work spans a range of street art styles, from New York graffiti, spray paint and paste ups, to stencils and sculpture.

MAY’S has been curated by Tugi Balog and features works by Chor Boogie (USA), Kamion (UK), Kenji Nakayama (USA/Japan), Peque (Mexico), Taring Padi Collective (Indonesia), and from Australia: B.U.G.A.U.P., Peter Burgess, Cultural Urge, Deb, Die Laughing Collective, Dlux!, Dmote, Adam Hill, Jumbo & Zap, Luna & Peru, Mare, Mini Graff, Nails, Numskull, Otis & Peru, Phibs, Scram, Spice, Zap and Zombe, with a catalogue essay by Adelaide artist Dlux.
