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? And that so much amazing work has already gone up on the walls of our city?

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.  

Exhibition – QWUX Presents – 91xnmb – Lo-Fi Collective – Sydney

We’ve been big fans of the work from QWUX (not only his own artwork – but the many shows that he has curated), for ages now. When we saw this this morning, we were pretty damn pleased to hear that he’s doing another one – this time with the crew from Lo-Fi!

QWUX did a bit of an interview in The Brag recently, and had this to say about the show –

“91xnmp is a quick little passion project I whipped up. Basically, it thrust upon me to organise a show while working with the guys from The Tate, so, naturally, I took it as an opportunity to put together a show full of my favourite artists at the moment.

All the artists in 91xnmb come from a more illustrative background, often working with characters/portraits and other figurative work. I chose everyone because they have either influenced my own work in one way or another, or they have blown my mind with what they have been doing lately. I went for 16 artists as its the 16th show that i have curated and i thought that was a nice tie in. Most of the artists are sydney locals too, guys like Chris Yee, Nico and Alex Lehours are killing it at the moment, and literally lived less than 10 mins from my house till i moved recently.

I also looked outside of Sydney to some new artists i havent met, but really enjoy their work, TeamNigh has been killing it lately, as has Ryan Parsons. Then there are the guys whose work I just love to bits, Josh “KID9″ Thorsen, Mark Drew and Yewot are all guys I know personally, but love their work and collect it myself. Anyway, there is something for everyone, and from what In see of the works coming through its going to be a killer show – these guys are doing me proud!”

This is the 16th show that Qwux has curated, and if you look at the title upsidedown, it actually says QWUX16 – pretty damn clever we think! Oh, and as a bonus, Convaire will be doing a bad ass DJ set on the night as well. Can’t wait to see all the pics from this one – if you’re lucky enough to be in Sydney, head down there this Thursday to see it with your own unwavering eyes!
