Last weekend ex-Sydney and newly minted Melbourne artist Alexandra Lederman opened up her first solo show here in Collingwood, with LandEscapes. With playful abstractions juxtaposed with imaginative landscapes, this was a great showing by an emerging artist whose work we are particularly keen to follow!
Big thanks to David Russell for all the shots, and congrats to Alexandra on her first Melbourne show!
David Russells been a busy dude lately, snapping a whole bunch of shit all across the city – heres a few of his favourite shots of some of the latest of Melbournes street art and graffiti, check it all out …
David Russell did a bit of a trip southside this week, and found one of my favourite walls – I work about fifty meters away from this City Road location in Southbank, and get the pleasure of seeing it every morning and every afternoon. Definitely one of the finest spots to spot some great graffiti here in Melbourne.
We headed down to Backwoods Gallery last Friday night to check out Misos show, Bright Night Sky, and got a whole bunch of photos from the opening – great turnout, and the show was already sold out before it even opened! Nice.
Big thanks to DCats and David Russell for all the pics, nice one boys!
On Saturday Lou Chamberlain released her labour of love “Street Art Melbourne”. Lou has been collecting shots of Melbourne’s amazing street art in our streets and lanes for the last 6 years or so, and the result is this great new book, showcasing some of Melbourne’s best along side interstate and international visitors. Lou also invited a bunch of artists down and provided some paint to help colour the lane. Thanks to Dave Russell as usual for the great shots.
The book will be on sale from Friday this week and is published by Explore Australia (a subsidiary of Hardy Grant). You can grab a copy at all good bookstores, or online here.
Gary Seaman was here in Melbourne not too long ago, and, catching up on our snapshot backlog, we have all the photos from his show down at Just Another Project Space in Prahran! He also recently had a show this week up in Sydney, head over to The Opening Hours to check that one out!
For now, take a look at what he did whilst he was here in the ‘Burn, mad shit …
IF you’re sharp, you’ll have noticed that for the past two weeks we havent posted up any snapshots – an unusual occurance for us, given how much is going on. Alas, our gallery software got all b0rked up and we werent able to upload any gallery images! Thankfully, this is now fixed .. and along with the fix comes a whole new gallery style – hope you enjoy it!
To kick off this new style, what better than David Russells latest favourite pieces of street art from around Melbourne for October? Check out his pics for what was cool and grand over the past month … and stay tuned for a heap more pics to come over the next few days, we have almost three weeks of catching up to do …
Over the past few months, Ero embarked upon a rather cool little project in his spare time to paint up one of the latest additions to the Melbourne food truck renaissance – Ghost Kitchen.
“‘Ghost Kitchen’ came about due to there being ceremonial customs where food and drink is provided to ghosts, gods and ancestors in Taiwanese culture.
Ghost Kitchen’s food is a reflection of Taiwan combining both traditional and contemporary approaches. With a sense of duty and respect for the traditions of Taiwan the catering menu remains faithful to the recipes of Taiwan’s ancestors. We believe in food that is essentially healthy, nutritious but with an explosion of flavour.”
Sounds like some good damn food to me – and Ero, a rad New Zealand ex-pat living here in Melbourne, was particularly well suited with his style to this whole presentation, as you can see from all the awesome photos that David Russell got for us below!! Enjoy!
It was both artists first show after they each had a bit of a hiatus, and the works were all kinds of awesome – a brilliant mesh between both artists unique styles, and with some truly breathtaking pieces.
Check out all the photos that David Russell got for us below!
