Video – Wall To Wall Festival 2017 – Benalla

Another Wall To Wall has been and gone, but they’re got the video out, and it looks totally rad! “The Wall to Wall Festival is the largest regional street art festival in Australia. And also one of the most innovative community development initiatives on a national level. This year it hosted 35 internationally acclaimed artists from Australia and around the world, and attracted thousands of curious participants and observers from near and far. It’s changing the face of Benalla, one wall at a time. And changing a whole community’s identity, while it’s at it. ” Man, it’d be great to

Through The Lens March 2017 – David Russell Photography

March has passed by leaving some pretty fresh art on the streets of Melbourne once again, the standout for me would definitely be the work of Rone in the now demolished Fairfield paper mills. The big Sinch tag rates as one of my favourites as well go big or go home as they say, also see some new works by Heesco, Choq,  Jason Parkers lovely portrait of Juddy Roller artist Goodie at Off The Kerb Gallery. Stay tuned for next month as Im going to the Benalla Street art festival over three days, this looks to be the biggest one

Snapshots – The Light In Us – Isolde – Off The Kerb Gallery

Congratulations to Isolde on her first solo exhibition at the iconic Off The Kerb gallery in Collingwood, run by the ever busy and beautiful Shini. I would have to say the work of Isolde would definitely be some of my favourite paste ups I have seen on the streets of Melbourne, in her many art covered lanes. Isolde’s work always stood out, her powerful images amongst the rust and ruin of some grungy laneway, this is where her work shines. For those that couldn’t make it down to Off The Kerb, I managed to garb some photos while having my

Snapshots – Make Your Self At Home – GOODIE – Juddy Roller

Congratulation to my good friend and all round beautiful soul “GOODIE”, as she put up her first solo show at Juddy Roller a few weeks back. I feel these works gave you a little insight in to the mind of the artist, you always take a risk when you expose yourself like this, I think she executed it well. It’s always refreshing to see what the artists come up with in the Juddy Roller space, especially when there is and has been so much talent pass through those doors. So for those that couldn’t make it to the show here

Through The Lens February 2017 – David Russell Photography

Welcome again to another look back at some of the amazing art by some very talented Melbourne artists, who consistently keep churning out some impressive works of art. Im always impressed at the constantly evolving styles especially by the graffiti community, forever pushing their craft to new heights. Melbourne also has a great line up of exhibitions usually every week there is something on, sometimes up to 3-4 shows in one night, with galleries like Backwoods, BSIDE, Juddy Roller and Off The Kerb just to name a few. Oh well guys until next month stay cool and get out and

Through The Lens January 2017- David Russell Photography

Welcome to 2017 and my first Through The Lens post of the year, I thought what better than to start the year with a dope selection of  some of Melbourne’s finest graffiti. This year already looks to be an amazing year of street art and graffiti, I can’t wait to capture it with my lens and share it with the rest of the world. I already know of some pretty talented artists from around the globe who will be staining our streets with some pretty amazing aerosol art, you will just have to wait and see what is coming up

Thursday Transmissions – Area 51, Flame & Seek …

Well, its been a bit of a week here back at Invurt HQ, with missing cats, crazy flatmates, and exhibition openings coming out of our ears … thankfully though, we have this weeks videos to catch up on to chill to, and, damn, there are some great ones this week! Well, we know we say that every week, but they seem to just get better and better all the time!

First up, Cinzah Seekayem has been doing a bunch of community work lately over in NZ – "I was privileged to be asked to work with a great bunch of kids as part of this years ‘Sole Project’ put on by Nga Rangatahi Toa Arts Initiative. The Sole Project, is a week long intensive one on one, student/mentoring workshop, working with youth in alternative education. The week involved research and development, concept sketch sessions, education about creativity and using aerosols as a art medium, can control and mark making techniques, the production of a mural, work of art, and a exhibition showcasing the work created. Which is currently on now at Ponsonby’s Art Station in Auckland. This video features the work our Josh Paki and my kids work – Pa and William. Ka pai!"

Next up, whilst we’re on the NZ tip, good friend and master of the crazy large pasteup, Drab was over in Aotearoa last week as well, where he put a whole heap of pieces in a few of the Area51 stores – mint!

CDH is the man. Not only is he hilariously funny in his street art activism, but the man constantly evolves both his work as well as his materials. Fire +street art = hell yeah. This is his latest "Naping" experiment …

Urban Cake Ladys show finished up this week, and if you didn’t get a  chance to see it, well, that’s a huge shame – it lived up to the hype, and not only was the work beautiful, but the gallery transformation was also something to be seen. Grand.

Ahhh Zonkvision … what more is there to say? Haha …

Just to finish off with something different – Body Canvas 2011 is coming up soon, and we spotted this really brief clip for the promo of it – we know that there’ll be a whole bunch of Melbournian artists taking part in this charity event, so keep your eyes peeled for more!

That’s it for this week – again, if you have anything, please feel free to send it over to us and we’ll include it in our weekly Transmissions!
