Art

Melbourne based Artist and Interior Designer Marcus Balscheit-Balmain creates large scale expressionist works on canvas that demand attention with bold, dramatic and atmospheric forms.

Marcus is a co-owner and designer at the renowned Interior / Furniture showroom Surround Interiors, established in 1997, designing bespoke lighting and furniture. Marcus has painted from a young age initially interested in landscape. Through his Interior work Marcus’ style has evolved, painting works that enhance the interiors he works on – “I strive to not only enable the main wall in a space to boldly relate to its surrounding objects, but to project dimension and create atmosphere through form, colour and scale.”

The works convey deconstructed and often simplified landscapes that reach into our dreamlike perceptions of our natural environment – clouded, mystical and ethereal.
