Scott Marsh is one of Australia's most iconic and infamous street artists. With a deep history in graffiti culture, he’s recognised internationally for his signature, politically inspired and newsworthy mural pieces. From tagging Sydney trains at 12 to becoming a finalist in both the Moran Portrait Prize and Archibald Prize, Scott confronts the common perceptions around street art and graffiti, using traditional art techniques to prove that fine art can exist and succeed beyond oil and canvas. While some of his interpretations may be contentious, the overwhelming majority of Australians admire and encourage his work, with each piece attracting droves of spectators and transforming mundane buildings into shrines of hope, resilience and social change. Scott’s work has made news headlines globally with his iconic pieces including Kanye Loves Kanye, Saint George, Tony loves Tony, Trump Obese Turtle,  Merry Crisis and A Symbol of Pain and Frustration.
