Scott Marsh – Talking ‘Graffiti Bouquet’ at Bathers’ Pavilion

How was the ‘Graffiti Bouquet’ work received? The show is all but sold out, right? Thinking back on your upbringing as an artist, how does it feel to have a body of work showing in a place like the Bathers’ Pavilion, with wine and canapes n shit?

Really well. The show was all but sold out days before it opened. Bathers’ Pavilion is a beautiful spot – a grand heritage building right on the beach at Balmoral. It’s not a place you’d expect to find work from a graffiti writer, or any form of graffiti. The first time I exhibited my floral works was in a guerrilla-style show on a moving train, so this seems like the perfect antithesis to that, which is perfect. I’m all about the canapes!   

Can you tell us any music you listened to, movies/docos you watched, or books read during the making of this body of work? Anything else that might have had a direct or indirect impact on you or the work?

I listen to so much random shit, it’s hard to pin down one thing. I was heavy into the YouTube series Big Lez, and Mike Nolan. It’s fucking skitz!

Anything else you want people to know about the show?

It’s open until 2 March. The full catalogue of works can be found here: scottmarsh.com.au



What’s coming up for you in 20/20?

It’s been a busy start to the year. I have a list of to-do’s and I’m gonna get ticking.
