Artist Bio

Originally from the South Coast of NSW, Smug has called Scotland home for 20 years.

An internationally renowned artist known for his realistic large-scale mural installations Smug takes inspiration from people and nature, exploring the harmony in the relationship between the two. With his trademark understanding of light and shadow Smug’s painting can often juxtapose themes together such as death, playfulness, melancholy and unadulterated joy.

Whilst his technique stays true to his foundation with traditional graffiti Smug’s murals can be seen as “stylized realism” with hyper realistic elements achieved freehand, primarily with spray paint.
