Glasgow Street Art

Glasgow Home Page

Glasgow Street Art has now began being commissioned by the local council. Many of the art works around Glasgow, have been painted by the Australian born Glasgow artist Sam Bates (Smug), and a local artist that goes under the name Rogue-One, along with other artists from the Recoat Gallery in the West End of Glasgow.

Many of the first works were carried out in the West End of Glasgow, but some of the largest are now appearing in the city centre.

Some of the works are on buildings that are for sale, or for lease, or where new buildings will be built, so may only be there for a few months, or years.

Some of the larger images here are really large, so you will have to scroll sideways to view all the image.

The image below is on the south side of Mitchell Street, just off Argyle Street. The taxi floating with balloons was created by Rogue-One. The giant picking up people is a great spot for photos.

The images below are on the corner of York Street and Argyle Street, about 300 yards west fo Central Train Station Bridge. This is work created by Sam Bates. I had walked past these many times and thought they were posters for an old theatre that had recently closed.

The images below were on Clyde Street and Dunlop street, next to St Andrews Cathedral. These images were created by Rogue-One. They seemed to show what went on under the surface of the River Clyde. These images have been removed after the building was leased to be used as a gym. Large Image. Large Dunlop Street Image . Map G1 4ER.
