Melbourne's woolly weather might have caused a bit of cancellation chaos this weekend, but it sure didn't put a dampener on the first stage of the city's newest public art project.

Instead, it was all systems go for the Upper West Side Street Art Precinct, as six of Melbourne's celebrated artists braved the rain to work their magic on the walls of the power station at the corner of Little Bourke and Spencer streets.

The project's been helmed by Juddy Roller — the same street art collective behind iconic installations like the large-scale silo art works in Brim, Rupanyup and Kimba, and the well-loved Fitzroy Faces mural — in partnership with the developers of the CBD's Upper West Side, Far East Consortium, and Powercor. They've pulled together local legends Adnate, Sofles, Fintan Magee, Dvate, Smug and Rone to create six new large-scale murals, in an attempt to breathe new life into a once drab pocket of the CBD.

The artists wrapped up their live painting on Sunday night with a closing party, complete with DJ sets and food trucks. You can pop by and see the artworks whenever you like.
