Thursday Transmissions - ROA, Atlas & Scrawl - INVURT


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


Sunshines Melbourne Street Art & Graffiti Top 10 – September 2016

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? And that so much amazing work has already gone up on the walls of our city? Dean Sunshine found us his top ten picks once again for this busy month, and as we come out of winter and into spring, I cant help but be pretty excited to see what else 2016 has in store for us!! 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

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.  


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

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!
