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?

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 – Mangam Linea, Sirens and Heroes – Katie Young and Zsandor Burai – Dome Gallery – Melbourne

Katie Young and Zsandor Burai have a show coming up at Dome Gallery. This is my first glimpse of their work and I’m liking their style a lot. The preview shots look great, this looks like a great show. The show opens this Thursday the 14th of March from 6-8pm.

From the press release “In March this year, Dome Gallery will show the recent works of Melbourne artists Katie Young and Zsandor Burai. The exhibition will include recent paintings by the pair exploring mostly the female form infused with symbology and nature inspired imagery.

Mangam Linea explores the coexistence between pleasure and pain, intimacy and loneliness, self and God, light and dark, good and evil, life and death. The masculine meets the feminine to infuse all of the elements, exposing the fine line and creating a beautiful agony.

“I paint, I draw, I write, and I photograph the world around me. I am inspired by the beautiful, the ugly, the evanescent. I am forever striving to emulate the wonder and fragility which the subject emits. Exploring the intangible and indescribable, to try and pin down the mystery of nature and of oneself…always slightly out of reach.”

Katie Young was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1985. She works predominantly in oils and watercolour. Her work is almost always a collection of portraiture or figurative work exploring the notion of sexuality, identity, and spirituality.

Zsandor’s paintings explore the relationship of self and identity between the existential and the spiritual realms. Investigating their relevance by means of variable echoes, defining the line between reality and the dreamworld, and the self being perceived through the eyes of others. His subjects often at first glance appear confident and alluring with his use of bold line, but on closer inspection these characters are vulnerable in intricate detail and keeping close guard of the fragility that lurks within.”
