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