Glasgow Street Art

Glasgow Home

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.

The image below is on the south side of Mitchell Street, just off Argyle Street, a short walk east of Central Train Station Bridge. The Taxi floating with balloons was created by Rogue-One. The giant picking up people was created by Sam Bates, a great spot for photos.

The images below were under Glasgow Central Train Station Bridge, on Clyde Street. These images were created by Sam Bates in about 2012. In 2017, I noticed these had been removed. Large Image . Map

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 Day Surgery.

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

This was the What Every Woman Wants department store from the 1870s to 2003, demolished in 2019 to be replaced by modern Offices.
