Outpost Project - Australian Stencil Art Prize - Sydney - INVURT

Snapshots – EMPTY – RONE – Lyric Theatre

This show will be talked about long after the metal monsters tear down this beautiful 1920’s theatre that Rone brought back to life, giving Melbourne one last chance to see her in all her beauty. And boy did she shine especially from a photographers point of view, I returned 3 times to capture the amazing space come to life with these incredible shards of light coming through the porthole windows from 3:30 pm. I also loved just watching all the reactions of the bystanders as they walked in and were struck by a 10 metre mural depicting a female over

Snapshots – The Art Of Banksy – The Paddock Federation Square

This is one show that had its fair share of critics “The Art Of Banksy” featuring art purchased by various collectors on display in a faux London street scape. I myself am a big fan as are many are of Banksy’s work as it is what street art was originally about and that is using the street to convey a message about war, hunger, greed, politicians and the list goes on. It was great to see the works up close but something just didn’t feel right, some of the works felt out of place on a clean sterile wall, as


Once again congratulations to Georgie Seccull on her first solo show at the Gasworks arts space in Albert park, when I attended the show last week I was impressed to say the least. On seeing her creations up close one got to appreciate the amount of work that went into each piece she had created. Made from wood, metal, wire and other everyday objects, I could see Georgie had employed many techniques to bring these amazing pieces of art to life. For those that couldn’t make it to her show enjoy the photos I took while I was at the

Melbourne street art and graffiti are still going so damn strong, but would have thought we’d be three quarters of the way through 2016 already?

Check out all the latest pics below, and enjoy! 1. Sirum – Clifton Hill 2. Lush – Cremorne

Through The Lens September 2016 – David Russell Photography

The month of September saw me capture everything from exhibitions featuring Shida at the new Backwoods space over in Footscray, Ha Ha at Off The Kerb Gallery and Frenchy at Backwoods Gallery, I also managed to spend a bit of time in the heart of Melbourne in Bourke Street with one of my favourite artists Mayonaize. As per usual I have a bunch of night time long exposure shots doing a bit of light painting, this has to be some of my favourite work as I have said many times in my previous posts, the art comes alive under torch

Snapshots – Brainfade – Frenchy – Backwoods Gallery

Almost forgot to post these photos from the exhibition Brainfade by the artist Frenchy at Backwoods Gallery a few weeks back, so for those were unable to attend the show enjoy the photos I captured.  


Interview – Ox King

Distinctive, colorful, weird and downright gorgeous are all words that I’d attribute to the work of Ox King – and even then, they are meager words and are not able to give full justice to the pieces he does. Having worked across the years honing his style, which crosses between pop and fantastical fauna, to the realms of saturated manga-come-blade-runner-esque feminine visuals, Ox King has quickly become one of the most recognisable artists painting walls across Australia. Working predominantly around the streets of Sydney, Ox has also traveled wide and far, spreading his work across a legion of walls and into

Snapshots – Rise & Fall – HA HA – Off The Kerb Gallery

For those of you that missed Rise and Fall by HA HA at Off The Kerb Gallery two weeks ago, I managed to get some photos before the show opened. This show was a departure from his usual works, here he employed broad range of techniques from illustration to brush and even some bronze sculptures of his iconic Ned Kelly stencils.

Through The Lens August 2016 – David Russell Photography

This month sees my usual wrap up of the Melbourne Graffiti and Street art scene, seen both in daylight and under the stars at night. Capturing Melbourne under the night sky is something quite special, the art seems to come to life and adds another dimension to these already amazing works of art. Since most of the work is done by good friends of mine I feel a real responsibility to do it justice and make their work shine – its a collaboration of sorts, that produces some amazing results. August also saw exhibitions featuring artists Kenta “Senekt”, at Backwoods

Outpost Project – Australian Stencil Art Prize – Sydney

Congrats to all finalists of the Australian Stencil Art Prize, as a part of Outpost Project on Cockatoo Island this coming weekend!

Back in 2008, the Australian Stencil Art Prize was born from a simple idea – the desire to put a spotlight on the amazing calibre of Stencil artists – and it has now transformed in three short years to a fundamental piece of Australian street art culture.

The aim of the prize, is, simply, to recognise, reward and archive stencil artists and stencil art itself, as an “art-form in its own right”.

Director Jacinta Walpole, who has a long running background in community projects, and local artist Nicholas Fintan, curator and coordinator, have worked diligently on the Art Prize to reach the height it has and have definitely created a superior sincere artistic contest. And an integral component of the Outpost Project this year.

After last years winner, E.L.K. took out the title with an incredible piece, we welcome this years the finalists to the festival and await anxiously for the winner to be revealed on Saturday! Stay Tuned!
