Through The Lens February – David Russell Photography

Last month saw some amazing work from Melbourne’s graffiti and street art community, painting all manner of shapes and sizes from small canvases to mega productions spanning as far as the boom arm would allow. As for the laneways there is always a fresh burner or two amongst all the of the mess, which I love so much all those layers Its like a living breathing entity.

Amazing Street Art Collaboration – Little Smith Lane – Collingwood

This would have to be one of my favourite walls so far this year and the key word is collaboration, artists such as Bryan Itch, Mike Makatron, Plea, Damon Soule, Nitsua, Adam Paquette, Stiff  Ives and Sparkles, all came together to create something pretty special.

Dvate & Smug – Fitzroy

It’s always good catching up with these two amazing artists Dvate and Smug, I came across them in Fitzroy where the two have painted many times before, so it was good to see their two unique style come together.
