Velodrome mural

The mural we painted at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome for the Glasgow 2014  Commonwealth Games. Was such an honour to do this commission. We painted this one with brush and acrylic on scaffold through the nights leading up to the games. It was a serious challenge but probably one of our favourite murals we've ever painted!

Emirates Arena Mural

The mural we painted at the Emirates Arena for Glasgow 2014  Commonwealth Games. Was such an honour to do this commission, one we're really proud of!

Rights Respecting Mural

A new Rights Respecting Mural designed by a pupil at St Stephen's Primary School in Springburn.

Mural at the Riverside Museum

The Riverside Museum (The new Transport Museum) commissioned us to create a drawing mural on their entrance to celebrate the European Museum Awards this month. The drawing was meant to be for one night only but staff and visitors have enjoyed it so much they have decided to keep it up. Get yourself down to check it out. Museum is pretty ace and worth a visit anyway!

Kirsty Whiten exhibition opens

Last night Wronger Rites opened, a new solo exhibition by Kirsty Whiten at Whitespace in Edinburgh with Leith Late. It runs for 2 weeks so get along to check it out. There are also various murals and paste ups worth a look, opposite the Edinburgh Printmakers and on Dalmeny Street.

Elliot Tupac's in town!

The lovely and talented Peruvian artist, Elliot Tupac visited Glasgow on his UK tour. We had the joy of painting a mural with him at St Stephen's School in Springburn. Here are some progress shots to wet your appetite but full shots on their way! Make sure to go check his show at South Block in Glasgow.

Progress at Turning Point

This year we are running a mural project with City of Glasgow College illustration students at Turning Point Glasgow's service for homeless people. Students have visited the centre, met with staff and service users and then created designs for selection. 4 lucky students had their designs selected and as a class we started painting the murals this month. 

Fresh Creations in Clydebank

This month we are working with #FreshCreations in Clydebank working with 2 groups of young people to create a community mural in the area. In the first few weeks we have been learning and practicing spraypaint techniques.
