Through The Lens February – David Russell Photography

Last month saw some amazing work from Melbourne’s graffiti and street art community, painting all manner of shapes and sizes from small canvases to mega productions spanning as far as the boom arm would allow.

As for the laneways there is always a fresh burner or two amongst all the of the mess, which I love so much all those layers Its like a living breathing entity.

I can’t wait to bring you next months crop of photos, already so much happened and we are only four days in to the month of March, till then peace out peeps

Amazing Street Art Collaboration – Little Smith Lane – Collingwood

This would have to be one of my favourite walls so far this year and the key word is collaboration, artists such as Bryan Itch, Mike Makatron, Plea, Damon Soule, Nitsua, Adam Paquette, Stiff  Ives and Sparkles, all came together to create something pretty special.

Snapshots – Dvate & Smug – Fitzroy

It’s always good catching up with these two amazing artists Dvate and Smug, I came across them in Fitzroy where the two have painted many times before, so it was good to see their two unique style come together.

Check it out the next time you are in Fitzroy and while you there have a wonder around and look at the art filled streets of Fitzroy and Collingwood, you won’t be disappointed.

Video – Sofles – Graffiti Mapped @ White Night Melbourne 2015

Video – Sofles – Graffiti Mapped @ White Night Melbourne 2015

I had the chance to watch Sofles painting his massive mural the other week, and yet another change on Saturday night to see his amazing work brought to life by Grant Obsbornes incredible graffiti mapping projections. Put together under the mad and rad creative direction of Shaun Hossask from Juddy Roller, if you weren’t in Melbourne, and didnt get to see it yourself (you missed out!), then you now have that chance!!

Brilliant video once again from Selina Miles as well – she never, ever disappoints with these. Lets also not forget the rad soundtrack by Opiou!

Watch the whole process and end result in all its glory below!

From the press release –

“On Saturday the 21st of February, Sofles – Graffiti Mapped premiered at Melbourne’s largest cultural festival, White Night Melbourne. Attended by over 500,000 people and running from 7pm – 7am, the festival takes over Melbourne’s CBD for a one night only artistic extravaganza.

Many months in the making, Sofles – Graffiti Mapped is an innovative step forward for the world of graffiti and technology. Sofles – Graffiti Mapped explores the intrinsic connection between graffiti, street art and technology through a combination of 3D video mapping, traditional street art and graffiti techniques and motion design.

Over 5 stories high, Sofles’ inner city mural is his biggest work to date. Add to that Grant Osborne’s incredibly detailed motion design and a musical score by New Zealand music producer Opiuo, and you have a truly innovative work of art. Visible for one night only, but destined to leave an impression on the city’s skyline Sofles- Graffiti Mapped was one of the most exciting events of the entire White Night Melbourne festival.

This video has been shot and cut by the director of Sofles’ extremely successful previous video, Limitless, Selina Miles. “

Event – The Paterson Project – Melbourne

Well, holy shitballs, this is an event that I’m pretty excited to stick up today, and one that I cant wait to see (and paint at!!). Another huge production will be going down in Collingwood next week, as the Paterson building gets a huge makeover from over a hundred Melbourne artists, check out the press …

The Paterson Project will be one of Melbourne’s most exciting and important street art events in 2015. Elite talent from all over Australia will be painting together under one roof to raise money for The Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation with artworks to be auctioned off on the night. Housed inside the ‘Grand Lady’ of Smith Street, the Paterson building’s top three floors will be transformed into one giant canvas for more than 100 artists.

Melbourne is a vibrant and innovative place for street art culture, and events like The Paterson Project continue to promote its presence and notability in the global street art community.

The Paterson is a heritage listed building that is destined to be reincarnated as apartments. The history of the building spans over a century, and for the past forty years has remained a home to artists and musicians. This event will enable the local populace and the street art community to come together and celebrate the history and culture of the Paterson building. The Paterson Project will pay homage to the artistic passage of the site through the creation of new art and give the building the send off it deserves.

We hope you will join us at the Paterson building on the 6th of March to celebrate street art, urban culture and Melbourne’s art community. See some art, have a drink and help us reach our target of $15,000 for The Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation.”

Yeah, its a little sad that this grand old building being redeveloped is yet another sign of an increasingly gentrified Collingwood, but what a way to send it off before its reincarnation as (yet another) apartment block – and dear god, thats a lot of fkn art going up! With all of my favourite artists involved, this whole thing is going to be massively amazing.

So, head down on Friday the 6th March and check it all out – and, while you are there, buy yourself some of the art that will also be created and help raise a bunch of money for charity, there’ll be some amazing pieces coming out of this.  See you all there!

Snapshots – Cut Back Documentary Melbourne

One day Rachel Bentley’s curiosity got the better of her and so she became seriously enthralled by and involved in documenting street art and graffiti, the opinions and favour, legalities and people involved; the result? Cutback a one hour feature and 3-4 hour online series / conglomeration of those involved, the nature of their art, the evolution of the culture, the collectors, the galleries…

The Melbourne launch was held above the infamous 3 level ‘Project Melbourne Underground’ in Emerald house with talks by Luke Mcmanus, Fletcher Andersen (Facter) and Rachel Bentley, on screen interviews with Makatron, Rone, Haha, Sandra and Andrew, Fletcher Anderesn, Ian Strange,  Vexta, E.L.K and many more, and one incredible view from the balcony.
