Through The Lens January 2017- David Russell Photography

Welcome to 2017 and my first Through The Lens post of the year, I thought what better than to start the year with a dope selection of  some of Melbourne’s finest graffiti. This year already looks to be an amazing year of street art and graffiti, I can’t wait to capture it with my lens and share it with the rest of the world. I already know of some pretty talented artists from around the globe who will be staining our streets with some pretty amazing aerosol art, you will just have to wait and see what is coming up

Through The Lens November 2016 – David Russell Photography

The year is almost over and here we are once again showing you just some of the dope art that went down in the month of November. My favourite piece would have to be Mayo’s addition to the floor at the old lyric theatre where Rone had his exhibition. I am a big fan of Mayo’s work seeing it on this scale was epic and had to be seen to really appreciate the way he executed it. There aren’t too many pics from November so I will make up for a bumper addition next month, so till then stay cool

Once again, Dean Sunshine was out and about, snapping his pics for all the best things he saw around our fair city over the month of November – and this time, I’ve actually seen some of these pieces since I got home a few weeks ago! Its December already now, and its hitting crazy time already, Im sure there is a lot more left to come for the remainder

Rone – Empty – Scann3D/VR

After seeing one of the most amazing shows of all time, Rone’s Empty, and knowing the space would soon disappear – I had to introduce Rone to some good friends of mine, the crew at Scann3D.  Using their super high end 360 scanning technology – we spent about 5 hours in the space after the show closed one night scanning the entire show – and after many hours of intense rendering the guys at Scann3D have created this 360 capture of the show.  This technology is like google maps on steroids and is a unique and powerful format to capture

Through The Lens October 2016 – David Russell Photography

Join me once again as its that time to see what I saw in the month of October, it was a big month for artist Rone with his exhibition “EMPTY“, man what a show this was exhibited in the old Lyric theatre for the last time before demolition. October also saw “The Art Of Banksy“, exhibition behind Federation square along the train tracks, there was so much controversy surrounding this show. I wasn’t too phased I was just happy to be there with handful of my good mates who’s art featured on the way in to the exhibition, its on

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

Submissions Wanted – Yo Gobo – Electro & Stencil Light Exhibition – Melbourne

We love anything to do with technology, and we love emerging new forms of artistic practice – and this is no exception. Those of you who have seen stuff including the recent White Night event that was on in Melbourne know the power of projection and the potential inherent in this form of "Street art".

Now, Electrolight are teaming up with Fed Square, and they’re looking for people to get involved in their next big project "The Light In Winter" – budding eletroc light artists, this is your call out …

"Electrolight, in association with Fed Square is excited to announce a joint initiative for The Light in Winter 2013.

‘Yo Gobo’ will see a selection of designs realised as unique gobos and displayed in a public art projection in St Paul’s Court, Fed Square over the Winter Solstice celebrations from 20th to 23rd of June. All entries received will be displayed on Fed Square’s Big Screen on the evening of 20th June during the Solstice Weekend.

‘Yo Gobo’ will be a prominent, active part of The Light in Winter and a highly visible attraction at Fed Square for it’s duration.

Submission are now open. Check out the Yo Gobo EOI and get involved…."

Heres a small run down on whats involved – check out the info PDF here.

"The Light in Winter at Fed Square is entering its 7th year and again plans to bring together communities, artists and designers from many backgrounds to explore and creatively realise ideas about light. The central theme for the 2013 festival is to connect light and the power of voice – its physical power, its power of communication, its democratic power and its power to uplift and heal.

The Light in Winter is produced by Fed Square Pty Ltd and directed by Robyn Archer, one of Australia’s most beloved and successful artists. The burgeoning program is now a high-profile annual event in Melbourne, and has national and international recognition.

In 2013 the program will see all activities, workshops, performances and displays anchored around a key installation by artist Bruce Ramus. The commissioned piece is called the Helix Tree, a 13m-high light sculpture equipped with advanced sound and light technology which means it can be activated by sound and voice.

‘Yo Gobo’ will see a selection of designs realised as unique gobos and displayed in a public art projection in St Paul’s Court, Fed Square over the Winter Solstice celebrations from 20th to 23rd of June.  All entries received will be displayed on Fed Square’s Big Screen on the evening of 20th June during the Winter Solstice Weekend.

‘Yo Gobo’ will be a prominent, active part of The Light in Winter and a highly visible attraction at Fed Square for it’s duration.

WHAT’S A GOBO?

A gobo is a metal disk with holes cut into it, through which light passes to create a desired shape or pattern. In effect, it enables stencil art to be created with light.

EXPRESSION OF INTEREST

Designers (of all disciplines), architects, design enthusiasts, individuals, companies and collectives, from Australia and around the world, are invited to submit images/gobo designs for inclusion in the project.

All complying designs will be displayed on the evening of Thursday, 20th of June. A selection of entries will be cut in to steel gobos and displayed on the facade of Fed Square’s E-Shard Building (Flinders St) from the 20th to 23rd of June.
