Through The Lens July – With David Russell Photography

Well it’s that time again for you guys to see some of my favourite images from the last month, which basically consists of who I think is putting some dope work out there, and messing up Melbourne as well.

The prolific nature is what really draws me to it, especially when I catch a train I’m like a kid in a candy

Exhibition – NEVER FORGET TO REMEMBER – Adrian Doyle – Dark Horse Experiment – Blender Studios.

NEVER FORGET TO REMEMBER Adrian Doyle Its been three years since controversial artist, Adrian Doyle’s last exhibition. This is a long time for an artist that has had over 20 solo shows. But the Melbourne based urban artist has been busy doing almost everything.

Exhibition – Post Graffiti Pacific – aMBUSH Gallery – Sydney

Some of my favourite kiwi artists are heading down to Oz this week, with another rad group show at aMBUSH Gallery – Post-Graffiti Pacific. Held at the new space that those Sydney legends Bill and have put together “Post–Graffiti Pacific is not just another graffiti exhibition. It’s a statement and a definition – a bold assertion of language, history, culture, expression and the significance of place in art making. Curator Olivia Laita and her line-up of seven leading Post–Graffiti Pacific artists are proposing, with conviction, the dawn of a new movement in art. Post–Graffiti Pacific features the multidisciplinary work of Auckland-based artists

Exhibition – Emmaline Zanelli – Espionage Gallery – Adelaide

Ah, Espionage Gallery, bastion of so much that is good and right about the burgeoning Adelaide emerging art scene – and, again, as always, they have something pretty cool in store for us with their next show.

"down from the sun
up from the ground
on land and in sea
domesticated or free
fur & fins
scales & skins
alive the world over,
but in our minds they begin.

Animalia gives life and stories to the elusive creatures that are born from the mind of Emmaline Zanelli.

Espionage Gallery Proudly Presents : animalia, the first Solo Exhibition by Emmaline Zanelli. Emmaline’s illustrations have to be
seen to be believed. Intricate line work creates weird and wonderful creatures by this young artist."

We have to admit, we weren’t too familiar with Emmaline Zanellis work until we saw news of this show, but having checked out her work we will definitely be following both any images we see of this show, and her work in the future.

We wish we could be there, but if you’re in Adelaide, you do – so head down there tomorrow night!
