Nuart and Yardworks 2019

One of the most eye-catching artworks of Nuart Aberdeen 2019 is by  Smug. He created a monumental piece towering ‘The Green’ of a friend from Glasgow with his dog.

Sam was also in attendance at this year’s Yardworks, and as usual, he certainly impressed the crowds with his attention to detail.

Smug describes his work on the following video, see it here.
