Through The Lens With David Russell – April

It’s that time of month again to show you whats been happening on the streets of Melburn, as always there is something happening.

Below is a selection of some of my favourite shots from Ironlak’s 10th anniversary paint up in Croft Lane. The event saw some of the best Melbourne and overseas artists repaint the lane; Dvate, Sofles, Treas, Sirum, just to name a few .

We also saw Trunk Diner put on an amazing Sunday event with live painting over two months, featuring Conrad Bizjak, Deams, Itch, Lucy Lucy, Jaws, Hancock and more.

Invurt also got down to Junky Project’s first solo show ‘WASTED’ at The Darkhorse Experiment in Blender Studios. Who doesn’t love Junky’s work from his usual suspects the sentinels you see everywhere, as well as some amazing sculptures made from everyday found objects.

There is also some amazing pieces from Senekt in Abbotsford, Dem 189 in Clifton Hill and an amazing collab between Rashe & Bailer in Brunswick; and finally Emily Vanderlism and the Authority Clothing crew fronted by Christopher Skyner, created a great piece down Bennets lane in the CBD.

As a Perth boy myself, if you had of said to me that P-town would be playing host to over 45 artists from both Australia and across the world, artists who are some of the globes absolute finest, I would have looked at you and asked if you were kidding! But PUBLIC is no joke – this is exactly what the guys over at FORM have made happen, and its one of the most impressive things I’ve ever seen happen over in Perth. We’re so fkn excited that myself, Luke McManus and Dean Sunshine are all heading over to the event to check it all out for ourselves, so we’ll keep you up to date on everything happening!

Love seeing Perth being the focus of something so important, fuck yeah!

Exhibition – ESCAPEVA – Kedai – Kelana Jaya – Malaysia

Weaving eight years of life experience of this Malaysian artist, Escapeva launches his first solo exhibition today.

Not satisfied with a normal nine to five job and a degree in graphic design, Escapva took up the aerosol can to study public painting. This show features what is means to be a graffiti artist in Malaysia. Entitled ‘Can Control’, Escapva claims ‘’Mastery of the spray can tip parallels the growth and development of self’’’.

Can Control is a highly composed and organised collection of what Escapva represents. This exhibition visually incorporates his steady progression into the world of graffiti, and hopes will encourage others to step out of the norm, and trust that following their hopes and dreams will allow room for creativity via an escape from reality.

Exhibition – Be Free – Split In Two – Northcote & South Melbourne

Whenever I hear the words “Be Free” and “exhibition” in the same sentence, I start wondering which exciting location I’m going to be directed to this time. After a string of collaborative shows held from galleries to random abandoned houses around the city, we will finally be able to attend Be Free’s first solo exhibition which will be held in… two different locations.In different ends of the city!

I’m not sure whether I should be going to Northcote or South Melbourne first, but it all sounds very interesting and I expect to be taken to two different and fascinating worlds, as the show will be exploring “two sides of the character’s personality” according to the event description says.

The exhibition opens this coming Friday, but meanwhile don’t forget to have a look at the super cute videos from Be Free below!

Feature Event – Aerosol Alley 2 – Melbourne

In 2012, local artist Wayne Tindall and Invurt began an epic multi-year project to transform a dilapidated laneway in the back streets of Windsor and Chapel St into a thriving mecca of street art on Melbournes south side.

After a period of time running the project, dubbed, unofficially, “Aerosol Alley”, the laneway gained the attention of Stonnington council, who offered to allocate the previously un-named laneway an official moniker – Artists Lane  and threw their support behind the project. In time, local businesses and other members of the local community also began to offer their support, and this once disused lane now plays host to a growing number of visitors and artists, both domestically and international, and is a focal point for graffiti and street art in the City of Stonnington and the greater Melbourne area.

Having played host to over four large scale painting sessions to date, including the inaugural Aerosol Alley event last year, artists are set once again to begin yet another transformation of the laneway, with a celebration of the new work to be held this Sunday, March 2nd, with the official Aerosol Alley 2 event.

“Aerosol Alley 2″ will feature over twenty of Melbournes finest graffiti and street artists renewing the walls of the laneway over the weekend, with live painting, food, DJs, street poetry and a host of fun on offer on the Sunday afternoon.

During the event, several artists will also be painting in the laneway, and there will be a special live art display of a first time ever collaboration – CONRAD BIZJAK vs SHIDA !!

Some of the artists who will be contributing to the new makeover of the laneway prior to the event will include:

Drewfunk, Putos, Silk Roy, Loadz, Presto, Ero, Senekt, Bailer, Facter, Ohnoes, Amac, Jak Rapmund, Paners, Woke, joJo Spins, Jack Frost, Short, Choq, Jack Douglas, Makatron, Heesco, Ryan Boserio, Troll, Mysterious Al, Pierre Llloga, Unwell Bunny, Frosk, Jonathan Guthmann and Ashley Goudie, and theres already some new feature art on the walls by INK & CLOG (Singapore).

There will be a great DJ lineup on the day, with plenty of urban beats for you in the carpark, with tuneage from:

  • Mike Steva (Deeperoots)
  • Jimmy James (Strictly Vinyl)
  • Chris NG (Le Soul, Goodlife)
  • MzRizk (Rizky’s Block Party)
  • Nubody (Bounce Audio)

Come down and join us in Artists Lane (Between Union & Green st) in Windsor on Sunday, March 2nd from 2pm til 7pm for a unique event! We’d love to see you all down there!!
