Born in 1984 Marsh is known for using a mixture of enamels, acrylics and aerosol, Marsh’s work explores the growing cross over between graffiti and high art, popular culture and the cult of the celebrity. Marsh pairs traditional motifs, elements of impressionism and pop with the pallet, scale & techniques associated with graffiti.
Spending his formative years exploring and painting throughout Sydney’s rail network. “Much of what I employ in terms of pallet, scale and the manner in which I paint comes from my background in graffiti”. The language of Graffiti is deeply personal to Marsh and the foundation of his style and practice. He finds graffiti to be as prolific as advertising, democratic, unsanctioned and accessible to all.
An international reputation has seen him travel to create work in North & South America, South East Asia, Europe and throughout Australia. Marsh graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from COFA, UNSW (2009) and has subsequently completed a Bachelor of Secondary Education (Visual Arts) from University of Technology Sydney.
