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.

Fitzroy Car Park - Top To Bottom Burners - Featuring Melburns Finest
One of the freshest car parks I have seen in a long time, featuring some of Melbourne’s finest Graffiti artists from past and present.
As you walk around you will notice that each room has utilised the same colour palette and as you can expect the end result was amazing.
So next time you’re in Fitzroy check out the Rose Street car park, you won’t be disappointed.
First piece in Singapore. Hanging at the rail corridor with #mistery and @thachna87.. Been an absolute age since I did a full sized piece, love it. Hard shot to get at the end of the day with the sun in the wall tho. #singaporegraffiti #graffiti #facter #colour #graff #letters #aerosol #sggraffiti #melbournegraffiti #melbournestreetart

Exhibition - Mistery - A Gallery Far Far Away - Singapore
Greetings all from the Lion City – this will be my first real post since my relocation up to Singapore a week or two ago, I decided to take the plunge and do something new, so I’ll be based out of here for the next six months or so. Good thing too, as there is a crapload of great stuff happening in the SE Asia region right now that I’m hoping to cover, like this show from old school Sydney graff legend Mistery – which just popped onto my radar today!
“Reaching back to his comic book roots, Australian graffiti artist Mistery has reinterpreted classic Star-Wars imagery in cartoon form with a graffiti styled twist.
Not only regarded as one of the countries leading aerosol artists, Mistery is also an accomplished B-Boy and MC, with Spanish paint company MTN recently producing a limited edition spray can in his honor!
Join us on Thursday night to meet the artist, view the works and enjoy some drinks, as we launch this new exhibition at CAD.”
Heres a work in progress of something for the show …
I fucking love Star Wars. I’ve seen the mans work in photos, but never had a chance to see it in a gallery context, so i’m really looking forward to this one – and i’ll be sure to grab a bunch of photos whilst Im at it.
Check out a video featuring the man below …
If you’re in Singapore, head on down and check it out – oz graff at its finest!
And finally, some mad Mistery shit to keep your eyes open …
What: A Gallery Far Far Away
Where: CAD Cafe, 23 Haji Lane, Singapore
When: Show opens Thursday 24th July from 7pm til later and runs for, well, not quite sure so best get there tomorrow!

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.
“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 firstname.lastname@example.org to remain up-to-date on next locations and to get involved, as a beautifier or exhibition visitor.

Event - Idle - By Sebastian Franz - At The Darkhorse Experiment - At Blender studios
Be sure to get along to this on Wednesday night, featuring my good mate, Sebastian Franz.
Look at the wall. The wall has been built. Soon, it will be un-built. There is someone’s dried spit sitting partially over the last loop on a tag someone else did two years ago. The tag is black. The black spray paint fits over the texture of the brick. There is mortar between the bricks, which is made from sand, cement and water. The wall is made from spit, spray paint, bricks and mortar.
Steps out onto the street. Full of intention. Today is this day, and another one is coming after that.
Wood is trees. Cut wood is dead trees. Paper is pulverised trees. Charcoal is tree-derived carbon, which is bound with gum. Art is when various adulterated and mutilated elements are forced to hang around with one another.
How did it begin? With an explosion. How will it end?
The wall has been knocked down. The chips are spraying.
Something else will happen later, and it will probably be violent.
