Previously, you may have spotted Scott Marsh’s art on the streets of Redfern, Newtown and Chippendale. He’s gone viral countless times for his colourful, cheeky and sometimes politically-charged street art (see ‘Kanye Loves Kanye
’ and ‘The Happy Ending
’). Not only does he use his art to poke fun, but sometimes to make statements about the most famous (and infamous) names in Australian culture and politics.
In Spice Alley, Scott Marsh has captured the essence of our traditional hawker-style markets with his colourful and kooky stencilled art style, highlighting well-known cultural aspects found in Asian culture. Near our Japanese restaurant Kyo-to you can find geisha girls, and under the yellow lanterns you can find a retro tuk-tuk. The largest of Marsh’s murals is a mural adjacent to Hong Kong Diner, which depicts a beautiful Asian woman wearing a traditional cheongsam.
