An increasing number of buyers are choosing to swap out sterile walls for creative flair, choosing to live in hot inner city suburbs where art is always on display.


Once considered eyesores or acts of vandalism, expressions of public art - such as murals and graffiti walls -  are popping up across the Inner West. Creating eye-catching displays and dotting unusual pops of colour in our streetscapes.


Director of property valuers WBP Group, Greville Pabst, said street art increases the cultural capital in an area and generally makes people feel good about where they live.


“It improves suburbs from a cultural perspective and drives traffic to individual properties. In that way, it’s an attribute of the property — and attributes add value.”


The trend isn’t limited to Sydney though, with buyers in the UK keen to get their hands on buildings where famous graffiti art, such as those by Banksy,  is displayed to developers in the US incorporating art into their designs, commissioning famous artists such as Daze and Rubin 415 to complete works.
