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.

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
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. More Cool
Sam Yong is one of those artists who I have followed for a while now, but have never really had a chance to find out more about. I first came across his work back in 2014 at the Analogue/Digital conference, where he was giving a talk as a part of the “Next Gen” artists talks alongside Carla McRae and Loretta Lizzio. As his work was projected upon the massive screen, I couldn’t help but be in slight awe at all the detail and macabre beauty within them. After that, beyond following his work on various social media, the next chance I had
Snapshots – Clockwise – Group Exhibition – S.T.K Art Spaces
If you didn’t get a chance to see the Clockwise group-show at S.T.K art space, this awesome line up of artists was curated by the lovely Filitsa Giannapoulos. This show featured a broad range of artists each bringing their own unique style, from Blek Le Rat to Conrad Bizjak to Rus Kidd and many more from Melbourne’s amazingly talented landscape. Check out the pics from the show below, hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

There is a long list of artists who have made their way over to New York City from our Australian shores, seeking what everyone else does in that big city across the seas – a chance to be inspired and create in one of the worlds most cosmopolitan environments. Brolga is one of these artists, who, after leaving the Northern Territory, travelled the world for some time before finally settled into the city he now calls home. With a pop styled aesthetic honed from his graphic design background, Brolga has been making a few waves in recent times. Recently, his Mohammed Ali painting
Through The Lens July 2016 – David Russell Photography
Hey guys it may be wet and cold but that doesn’t stop Melbourne artist’s from churning out some pretty dope art, wether on a wall or canvas July saw artist Cam Scale pull off a ripper of a show at Juddy Roller. Dvate and the guys smashed out a nice wall at the top of High street, Clifton Hill featuring pieces by Dvate, sigs, Putos, Askem, Sage, Porno and Ling. I also spent a bit of time out at night capturing the art under the cover of darkness bringing it to life using my two favourite torches the Led Lenser
Sunshines Melbourne Street Art & Graffiti Top 10 – July 2016
It’s not easy finding the best ten pieces around the city from month to month, but thats what Dean Sunshine tries to do for us in an un-ceasing survey of the best of Melbourne street art and graffiti. In this, believe it or not the 64th edition of his Top 10, Dean has chosen some of the best pieces that we’re seen yet! Of course, top tens are always subjective, but we do think that he’s nailed it this month! With work from all across the city, featuring Adnate to Al Stark, Hancock and Ape Seven and so many others, its a wonder

Just Another Gallery present Kirpy’s new show “Right Train Wrong Track” this Friday at The Baron Said. Back from OS Kirpy has some mad new work happening, check out this awesome video of his work at Revolver recently below.
From the Facebook page: “Right Train Wrong Track is a retrospective exhibition of months spent overseas discovering and exploring both foreign and familiar cities. Straying far from the typical tourist sights and sounds, Kirpy presents new work depicting a very personal perception of Berlin, New York and his home, Melbourne. Exposing each city through intricately detailed and layered stencils, Kirpy captures the distinct essence and character associated with each city.
The work presents the people, the graffiti and the unique experience of each city, also venturing underground to depict the veins of each metropolis – the train and subway systems.”
What: Right Train Wrong Track
Where: The Baron Said – 83 Kerr Street, Fitzroy, Victoria 3065
When: Opens on Friday the 21st of June 6-9pm and runs until until Monday the 24th.
