Paint Up – Easey Street Collingwood

These photos are shot over one week, just to give you an idea of the size of this amazing collaboration between some of Melbourne, Brisbane and New Zealand’s finest graffiti and street artists.

Shaun Hossack from the ever busy Juddy Roller crew, once again breathing life in to an otherwise lifeless urban canvas changing the surrounds.

Over the week I noticed how many people came to photograph the walls and saw how many people had a positive experience, once again demonstrating how public arts can have a profound effect on those that come in contact with these awe inspiring images.

So next time you are in Easey Street, Collingwood be sure to check it out, till next time get out there and explore the streets of Melbourne and don’t forget your camera.

Through The Lens March – With David Russell Photography

This months Through The lens is packed with some amazing works of art, all dropping over a 4 week period from The Paterson Project, Choqworld, Herbaium and Wall To Wall just to name a few.

Everybody is painting with a certain sense of urgency as the cold weather is on its way, things tend to slow down in Melbourne, then there are those who paint no matter what the weather is doing.

Abandoned building are plentiful in Melbourne and are a good place to be in the winter months plus there are plenty of shows to see, till next month guys stay creative.

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!
