Snapshots – EMPTY – RONE – Lyric Theatre

This show will be talked about long after the metal monsters tear down this beautiful 1920’s theatre that Rone brought back to life, giving Melbourne one last chance to see her in all her beauty. And boy did she shine especially from a photographers point of view, I returned 3 times to capture the amazing space come to life with these incredible shards of light coming through the porthole windows from 3:30 pm. I also loved just watching all the reactions of the bystanders as they walked in and were struck by a 10 metre mural depicting a female over

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

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

Exhibition – DOES – Endless Perspectives – Collingwood – Melbourne

Ok. So I’m a bit behind on this one. DOES is having a show in April called Endless Perspectives. DOES’ work is some of my favourite graff of late. Super tight, amazing colour schemes and some of the cleanest lines around. Can’t wait for the show!!
From the press release: “Just Another and Does are thrilled to present ‘Endless Perspectives’ – a new body of work aiming to capture graffiti’s transient nature. He displays his journey both as an artist and a person through forty canvasses centred around five cities close to his heart. A series of films by Stephan Polman accompanies the artworks, allowing you to join him on this pilgrimage around the world seeking creative enlightenment.
The five cities – Amsterdam, Basel, London, Paris and Melbourne – have acted as creative refuges for Does, who felt the need to escape his hometown to cultivate his craft. A former professional soccer player who has spent much of his life in the Dutch limelight, travelling has not only been an inspiration to Does, but also an escape. Each set of canvasses contains a distinct colour combination that was chosen based on the predominant colours Does came across during his travels in that city.
‘Endless Perspectives’ signifies the infinite interpretations and unlimited ways in which art and experiences can be perceived. During the journey that led to the work exhibited, Does’s outlook evolved continuously. Events that at first glance appeared to be hurdles became unsought opportunities and vice versa – it’s all just a matter of perspective: the viewers’ included.
Using his infamously meticulous letters, Does portrays the multifaceted aspects of his artwork and the inspiration surrounding him. A love letter to both cities and styles, ‘Endless Perspectives’ leaves you looking a little closer at the world around you.”
He’s also produced a couple of videos as part of a series leading up to the show. Here’s the first two.
