Now that things are starting to open up again and the weather has improved a bit, I got out with my camera to capture some of the newest artwork appearing on Glasgow’s wall, I was spoiled for choice. My first stop was the Viceroy bar at the Paisley Road Toll where Rogue One has certainly brightened up the beer garden, there is even some room for his pets.
I then crossed the river to SWG3 a favourite location for Glasgow’s street art fans, again I wasn’t disappointed, especially with the opening of it’s new gallery “Yard Life”
Out and about on the street also threw up some new pieces, one from Frodrik in Sauchiehall Lane , near Rogue One’s Guitarist was particularly striking. The Rebel Bear continues to entertain me, this time in the Candleriggs with his falling couple, on my way towards my bus I passed that famous Glasgow landmark where a Katie Smith has created a nice piece on their boarding, it’s just a shame that it is a temporary piece, once on thew southside I headed to the Rum Shack on Pollokshaws Road where I found another of the Southside’s BLM murals by King Listy, this time of the poet Benjamin Zephaniah.
There won’t be much time for street art this month as I’m committed myself to volunteering at the EURO2020 being held at Hampden and the Fan Zone in Glasgow Green, once things quieten down I’ll share some photographs from the event.
