Kanye Loves Kanye Street Artist Backs it Up with Ruthless New Mural of Mike Baird

It seems Sydney street artist Scott Marsh didn't spend too much time celebrating his alleged $100k profit last week (or drinking it at The Glad, for that matter). After his seven-metre Chippendale mural of Kanye West kissing himself went viral last month — and garnered interest from Yeezy himself, who apparently paid $100,000 to have it painted over — Marsh has come back with a new piece that is arguably even more relevant than Kanye's narcissism: a mural of NSW Premier Mike Baird.

The mural, which was painted last night, Sunday, April 17, has popped up on the side of the Lord Gladstone Hotel in Chippen Lane. Dubbed #casinomike by Marsh, it depicts the Premier on a "big Friday night" past lockout time at 1.31am, complete with casino chips, an illicit late night kebab and a bottle of Penfolds Grange that he assumedly bought before 10pm. It's smug as all hell. 

Not sure that Mike Baird will be able to shell out Marsh's high wall buffing fees to get the mural removed, but maybe he'll be willing to bargain with some policy.
