Outsiders, Twoone

Snapshots – Outsiders Featuring Twoone – At Backwoods Gallery

For those that missed out on last nights show “Outsiders” featuring Twoone, returning from berlin for this show, I was pretty impressed with what I saw it was a combination of his usual character stylings painted on these amazing light boxes.

Being painted on the glass or perspex you could see all the brush strokes through the light shining from behind, the first room had this industrial noise playing which was quite confronting but really set the mood.

The show will be running till October the 19th at  Backwoods Gallery in Easey Street Collingwood.

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.

Brad Mills – WildStyle In The West

This week I managed to get back to Brad Mills before she goes the way of  many other classic abando locations like the Collingwood silo’s, I really love this place as i’m sure a lot of you do.

From the graff covered walls to the to the old buildings that surround you, this makes for a perfect setting for photos, with all that rust and run down walls.

I always feel so safe and at home surrounded by decay and all forms of urban expression, from tags to burners, pieces to mad charo’s, it has it all.

If you ever got the chance to go there a few years back, it was massive on an epic scale the overall size was like few football fields, sheds as far as the eye can see photos’s can’t do it justice not even mine.

So if you gets the chance to pay her a visit before she leaves this mortal coil, do it you will not be disappointed.

I also grabbed a few cheeky pics on the by Dvate, Sabeth, Askem and some burners by the unstoppable Duke Grimo (Style).

Event – Bright Lights – By Numskull – At Backwoods Gallery

If you are looking for something to do friday night, then get along to Backwoods Gallery, and check out Bright Lights featuring Sydney artist Numskull

“Having not exhibited in Melbourne for over a decade, Numskull’s long awaited return also marks his first showing with Backwoods Gallery. Bright Lights is a series of paintings and sculptures that continue on from his recent residency at the Museums Quartier in Vienna where he celebrated our memories of popular comic book characters by reinterpreting them as a collection of museum busts.

Much like the works from Vienna, where the compositional arrangements of objects partially masked the identity of the characters, this new suite aims to subjugate the obvious. In Bright Lights, the immediately recognisable figures have disappeared. In their place are silhouettes of headless beings devoid of any distinctive personality, anonymous and statuesque. Their bodies are jolted by the blows of arrows piercing their skin as they float amongst a wreckage of irregular patterned objects.”

Bright Lights

Who: Numskull.

What: Bright Lights.

When: This Friday the 31st of July at 6pm to August the 10th.

Where: Backwoods Gallery, at 25 Easey street Collingwood, Melbourne, Victoria.

Through The Lens With David Russell Photography – July 2014

Well it has been another month filled with mad walls by both graffiti and street artists, from epic paint ups such as the Rose street car park and the south wall at Section 8, featuring the talented Conrad Bizjak and Heesco.

Its not just in Melbourne’s laneways in the CBD where you will find these gems, you only have to travel to suburbs such as Collingwood, Fitzroy, Richmond  Brunswick to find a lot of the work you see in my photos.

So next time you are in the neighbourhood be sure check out some of the incredible art that we are so lucky to be surrounded by.

Video – Last Breath Project – Melbourne

Video – Last Breath Project – Melbourne

The last breath project has been doing some cool things over th epast year or two. Targeting buildings that are on the edge of demolition, the Last Breath project and the artists who participate in the various cities gain access and turn it into a temporary gallery of paint and good shit.

Last Breath IV (Melbourne) from Last Breath on Vimeo.

“This an attempt to make the most of the final days of a spacious warehouse in North Melbourne, now void of any life, before its meaning and beauty are forgotten. We occupied the space and invited artists to celebrate the last days of this soon-vanished construction. Now, the building and its final beautification will fully perish and on its grounds, yet another materiality will rise.

Last Breath is currently traveling. Write to to remain up-to-date on next locations and to get involved, as a beautifier or exhibition visitor.

Thanks to Dean Sunshine for helping to realise this episode:
