One street from happiness is an exhibition of experimental prints and paintings by urban artists Trevor Bly (WA) and Patrick Doherty (WA) which explores ideas of locality, identity, spirituality and historical conflict.

Bly and Doherty have been working together for more than ten years, bringing together the worlds of graffiti subculture and contemporary art. Their attempts to merge two distinct practices, styles and approaches led to an examination of home and how identity is informed by place and space. One street from happiness offers invigorated, cohesive visuals which speak to Perth suburbs and the artists’ backgrounds.
