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

Snapshots – Spectrum – Senekt – Backwoods Gallery

Last week saw my good friend and very talented artist Kenta “Senekt”who had a solo show called Spectrum at Backwoods Gallery. I was really impressed with the progression of his latest works, having watched his style over the last three years since moving over from Japan. I must say its been an absolute pleasure getting to know Kenta and becoming good friends, even though there was a huge language barrier, thankfully my good friend Luke Mcmanus speaks fluent Japanese. Check out the photos below I captured for those who were unable to make it to the show.   More Cool

Interview – Sam Yong

Sam Yong is one of those artists who I have followed for a while now, but have never really had a chance to find out more about. I first came across his work back in 2014 at the Analogue/Digital conference, where he was giving a talk as a part of the “Next Gen” artists talks alongside Carla McRae and Loretta Lizzio. As his work was projected upon the massive screen, I couldn’t help but be in slight awe at all the detail and macabre beauty within them. After that, beyond following his work on various social media, the next chance I had

Snapshots – Clockwise – Group Exhibition – S.T.K Art Spaces

If you didn’t get a chance to see the Clockwise group-show at S.T.K art space, this awesome line up of artists was curated by the lovely Filitsa Giannapoulos. This show featured a broad range of artists each bringing their own unique style, from Blek Le Rat to Conrad Bizjak to Rus Kidd and many more from Melbourne’s amazingly talented landscape. Check out the pics from the show below, hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Interview – Brolga

There is a long list of artists who have made their way over to New York City from our Australian shores, seeking what everyone else does in that big city across the seas – a chance to be inspired and create in one of the worlds most cosmopolitan environments. Brolga is one of these artists, who, after leaving the Northern Territory, travelled the world for some time before finally settled into the city he now calls home. With a pop styled aesthetic honed from his graphic design background, Brolga has been making a few waves in recent times. Recently, his Mohammed Ali painting

Through The Lens July 2016 – David Russell Photography

Hey guys it may be wet and cold but that doesn’t stop Melbourne artist’s from churning out some pretty dope art, wether on a wall or canvas July saw artist Cam Scale pull off a ripper of a show at Juddy Roller. Dvate and the guys smashed out a nice wall at the top of High street, Clifton Hill featuring pieces by Dvate, sigs, Putos, Askem, Sage, Porno and Ling. I also spent a bit of time out at night capturing the art under the cover of darkness bringing it to life using my two favourite torches the Led Lenser

Sunshines Melbourne Street Art & Graffiti Top 10 – July 2016

It’s not easy finding the best ten pieces around the city from month to month, but thats what Dean Sunshine tries to do for us in an un-ceasing survey of the best of Melbourne street art and graffiti. In this, believe it or not the 64th edition of his Top 10, Dean has chosen some of the best pieces that we’re seen yet! Of course, top tens are always subjective, but we do think that he’s nailed it this month! With work from all across the city, featuring Adnate to Al Stark, Hancock and Ape Seven and so many others, its a wonder

Snapshots – State Of Mind – Cam Scale – At Juddy Roller

Thursday Transmissions – ROA, Atlas & Scrawl

Well, we’re pretty sure that this weeks Transmissions beats all the rest and is the largest we’ve done yet – in sheer number count anyways! With so many videos we’ve seen this week that piqued our interest, we wont delay – get watching and enjoy it all as much as we have …

As he’s one of our favourite artists, and as we helped out Art Series Hotels in their time up at Cockatoo Island, well, we have to start out with this video showcasing ROA at the event – love his work.

CDH was in the news last week, and, we’re sure you would agree, but removing this piece of implemented art, which actually added to the piece and made it quite amazing, was a fair wrong turn for Melbourne City Council – why not leave it as it was? It was pretty damn brilliant … read more of this story behind the sculpture on CDHs website.

On the Outpost Project tip – Art Nation had a special segment on the event, and if you haven’t been or haven’t thought much of it, this’ll probably make you want to go.

A little more on Outpost, as ArtSeries also did a piece a few days ago on the Oi! You! Exhibition – and there’s a bit of an interview in here with George Shaw, who put it together …

Numskull has the opening of his "Mixed Messages" exhibition tonight, and here’s a great sneak peek preview of the show.

We’re still seeing a lot of stuff turning up from D*Faces visit to us last month, but this is a more than excellent book ending to a grand visit! Check out the Bright Things TV segment on the artist …

At ten minutes, its pretty long – but this is an entire walkthrough and look at all the work up in the Pastemoderism 3 show – so much artwork …

They’ve been working on this for a while now, but Kaff-eine, Precious Little, Tig-tab and Blacklodge have been working on a pretty cool urban exploration show that’ll be on in January – we have the feeling that this is going to be something really quite extraordinary.

As we mentioned yesterday, Anthony Lister was in Sydney for Outpost as well – and this is a preview of the piece that’s launching today, Rainbow City Gaze. Nice.

Here’s a great time lapse of a recent piece by Makatron – love it.

Max Berry and Mark Alsweiler also have a show on this week, and this is preview of it – All Things Lost.

We’d be remiss if we didn’t put this up – Acclaim Magazine are celebrating their 25th issue soon, and they had Ken Done do the cover! Between Ken Done and Dropbears, we just can’t think of anything more fittingly Aussie.

Ironlak posted this up today of the Deer Duck Bistro being painted up in Brisbane by the Anomyart crew.

Lastly for this week, something quite cool – Tanja Jade, who opened a show at Backwoods last week, and Simon Peters put together this cute little cartoon – pretty funny stuff!

Well, that’s all we have again! Don’t forget to browse through previous weeks, and, if you have a cool video you want us to include – send it through!
