Snapshots – The Light In Us – Isolde – Off The Kerb Gallery

Congratulations to Isolde on her first solo exhibition at the iconic Off The Kerb gallery in Collingwood, run by the ever busy and beautiful Shini. I would have to say the work of Isolde would definitely be some of my favourite paste ups I have seen on the streets of Melbourne, in her many art covered lanes. Isolde’s work always stood out, her powerful images amongst the rust and ruin of some grungy laneway, this is where her work shines. For those that couldn’t make it down to Off The Kerb, I managed to garb some photos while having my

Snapshots – Make Your Self At Home – GOODIE – Juddy Roller

Congratulation to my good friend and all round beautiful soul “GOODIE”, as she put up her first solo show at Juddy Roller a few weeks back. I feel these works gave you a little insight in to the mind of the artist, you always take a risk when you expose yourself like this, I think she executed it well. It’s always refreshing to see what the artists come up with in the Juddy Roller space, especially when there is and has been so much talent pass through those doors. So for those that couldn’t make it to the show here

Through The Lens February 2017 – David Russell Photography

Welcome again to another look back at some of the amazing art by some very talented Melbourne artists, who consistently keep churning out some impressive works of art. Im always impressed at the constantly evolving styles especially by the graffiti community, forever pushing their craft to new heights. Melbourne also has a great line up of exhibitions usually every week there is something on, sometimes up to 3-4 shows in one night, with galleries like Backwoods, BSIDE, Juddy Roller and Off The Kerb just to name a few. Oh well guys until next month stay cool and get out and

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

Sunshines Melbourne Streetart & Graffiti Top 10 – November 2016

Well, here we are. After a tentative step into summer, its cold again here in Melbourne, but the laneways and walls are just as full of people painting as they ever are! 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

Event – Off The Rails Again – Singapore

Last month saw the first part of the Off The Rails event here in Singapore, a great display of music, food, and, of course, some mad painting across the walls of the infamous Railway Corridor near Buona Vista.

“We’re going Off The Rails Again! with a vibin’, family-friendly and interactive urban party! Artists from across the region bring a heavy dose of live art to the Corridor while psychedelic, reggae and jungle sounds rock the dancefloor. Grit meets glam as Zentai art and tie-dye create an unexpected fashion experience.”

The last event was absolutely off the hook, and more akin to something I’d see in Melbourne or NYC than I’ve expected to see in SG – but then, this is SG 2015, and things have changed here even from just a few years ago – the underground scene is starting to kick! Off The Rails had a really big turn out, and it was a grand adventure of art, music and all the finer things in life.  Check out the video from the last one just to see what I mean …
