Through The Lens With David Russell Photography – August 2014

Here is a compilation of my favourite shots from the last month, here you will find a mix of street art and graffiti in alley ways, abandoned buildings and trackside.

With the likes of Smug and Sofles you can bet there were some mad burners and they didn’t disappoint, painting non stop all over Melbourne.

Conrad Bizjak smashed out his largest mural to date, painting the wall mostly with rollers and some very tall ladders, Its perched on a rooftop facing the iconic Franco Cozzo store in Foootscray.

Also keeping up with style master Duke Grimo (styles), is a full time job this guy paints non stop and has been doing so since the 80′s.

Well thats all for this month, see you all next month get out and discover Melburn.

Event – Everfresh Studios – Open Studio – Collingwood

When the infamous Everfresh Studios closed suddenly last year we were in shock. The place was a true institution, like a museum, and soooo many good memories were lost, but not forever.

The guys have found a new space, and for the first and only time ever, they would like to invite you this Saturday to check out the new studio.

The studios will be open from 12 to 5 this Saturday and artists Rone, Wonderlust, Tooth, Tom Civil, Mayo and Makatron will all be there to show you around.

Video – Adnate – Sofles – Smug @ Northlands

It was an awesome piece and an awesome collab, by some awesome artists. Check out the (and, yet another) mad video from EdInFocus of the whole thing!

Adnate, Smug and Sofles @ Northland Shopping Centre from EdInFocus on Vimeo.

“Northland Shopping Centre has commissioned three leading street artists to create a graphic installation that will showcase the personality of Victoria’s largest Shopping Centre in the North.
The three feature artists include Smug, Adnate and Sofles with the four day large-scale installation commencing tomorrow morning.

British talent Smug, who has been hailed globally as one of the world’s most talented photo-realistic street artists, will be teaming up with two of Australia’s leading street artists Adnate and Sofles to collectively design and deliver a unique and ‘North’ inspired graphic.

The world first collaboration comes off the back of a new initiative from Northland Shopping Centre which aims to better utilise its key spaces to help showcase local and international talent, as well as support innovative projects and events.

Michael Bickers, Northland Centre Manager explains. “We wanted to explore the idea of creating more interesting spaces at the centre. A high-profile street art installation was suggested so we took the time to search for the right kind of artists who understood the Northland brand. On discovering local talent Adnate, who is famous for photo-realistic works in Fitzroy, Melbourne’s North and the CBD, we immediately saw a connection. Adnate was keen to be involved and invited internationally renowned Scottish street artist Smug and Brisbane talent Sofles to join the project. Together they have an incredible style supported by their huge fan following – we couldn’t be happier.”

Exhibition – Welcome to Black Canyon – Melbourne

We have always loved shows curated by Sean morris, and even better than a Sean curated show is him teaming up with Tom Groves from Knock Knock magazine fame for a new project – Black Canyon!

“The first venture from new Australian arts project Black Canyon opens in Melbourne next Friday, August 29.

‘Welcome To Black Canyon’ is set to feature large-scale print work by a lineup of artists from Spain, France, England, Canada, Germany and the USA (many of whom have never shown in Australia before) alongside a slew of local favourites.

Launching on the night will be the limited run risograph publication ‘Black Canyon Vision Quest 1′. A collection of bold, aggressive illustration and design,Vision Quest 1 Is Black Canyon’s statement of intent. No frills, no filler, just 16 young artists making uncompromising work.

Black Canyon is a collaboration between Sean Morris and Tom Groves, who first worked together on the ‘Gold Blood, Magic Weirdos’ group show at Backwoods Gallery in March of this year. It was the last in a trilogy of Magic Weirdos shows curated by Morris, which were greeted by big crowds in Melbourne, Perth and London.

The show runs until 5pm on Sunday August 31. Check the full lineup below:

Paint Up – Sofles, Adnate And Smug – At Northland

Sofles and Smug were in town recently, painting the town purple, beige, blue and every colour in between, with their unique styles of hyper rendering and tight detail. The guys were also accompanied by Adnate, the three of them spent four days in the freezing cold, where they each painted amazing portraits but each with such varying composition and    style.

To watch the three artists side by side was a definite highlight of my month, stay tuned as I will be posting their most recent paint up in Fitzroy.
