A significant public art installation aimed at capturing nature in the heart of regional NSW, Scott Marsh’s ‘Australian Natives’ is a flawless representation of contemporary street art.
This 50-metre-long mural installation makes a strong visual statement, situated across the interior of two retail levels and the entry to the new entertainment and lifestyle precinct of the Centre.
The artwork was completed and launched in September 2018, to coincide with the Centre’s opening, and includes a ‘bird of paradise’, paying homage to the Centre’s past, which featured the flower in its logo.
Through the use of both brush and spray can, Marsh was able to create immense detail, while still holding true to his graffiti roots.
