Meet our Street Art Ambassador, Marcus

Meet Marcus

Melbourne is famous for its vibrant street art scene and Marcus Ashford is our hotel’s Street Art Ambassador. Marcus has been interested in popular art from an early age, spending hours drawing and even putting together his own comics. As a teenager, Marcus’s tastes progressed to street art and graffiti.

By his early 20’s Marcus was examining the work of renowned street artists such as Banksy the mysterious British street artist with an international following and American designer Shephard Fairey famous for his Giant Andre the Giant “Obey” artworks.

Marcus is happy to direct guests to some of his favourite street art locations in Melbourne. He names the two best spots to check out fresh work by local and international artists as Hosier Lane (near Movida) and Crofts Alley.
