Through The Lens March 2017 – David Russell Photography

March has passed by leaving some pretty fresh art on the streets of Melbourne once again, the standout for me would definitely be the work of Rone in the now demolished Fairfield paper mills. The big Sinch tag rates as one of my favourites as well go big or go home as they say, also see some new works by Heesco, Choq,  Jason Parkers lovely portrait of Juddy Roller artist Goodie at Off The Kerb Gallery.

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 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

Exhibition – YOUTH – Off The Kerb Gallery

I have had the pleasure of already seeing the works on display this Friday at Off The Kerb and I must say I was impressed, Shini has as always put together another great show with some very talented artists.


“…… do you know, do you know
where you come from?…
You come from so many places,
from the water and the earth,
from the fire and the snow,
from so far away you journey…” (Pablo Neruda)

Off the Kerb is proud to reach its milestone of 10 years in the arts in Victoria by hosting this large scale charitable group exhibition entitled ‘Youth’. The youth of today represents a vital aspect of our society. The youth of a community is a reflection on the community as a whole. Youth is a time when one begins to shape one’s sense of identity in preparation for adulthood. Youth epitomises a critical time of growth and development and change. Our youth responds to, and in turn have a significant effect on traditions, customs, social constructs and our culture. They draw from their heritage and ancestry to form new journeys ahead. Youth implies innocence, freedom and naivety.

OTK celebrates its 10th birthday with this group exhibition in support of Red Dust www.reddust.org.au by donating the entirety of the gallery commission. Generations of Indigenous Australians in remote communities have lived a life impacted by poor health. This affects the whole community, especially young people. Red Dust believes that good health is the key to a bright future and that health outcomes can only be made possible through a two-way exchange with communities.

We are proud to be featuring in this show Matt Adnate who’s roots stemmed from graffiti art to become this country’s most prominent large-scale portrait artists.
