Back in 2008, local artists were invited to liven up the city’s streets, painting everything from break-dancing puppets (inspired by the Beastie Boys) to famed landmarks.
Glasgow’s murals have been a real attraction and talking point over the years, the beautiful big designs brightening up the tired, old spaces and bare walls across the city.
John Street: Hip Hop Marionettes
You can find this mural is in the heart of the city center, a very popular lunch spot in summer and transformed into a Christmas wonderland over winter.
Ingram Street: Fellow Glasgow Residents
This mural it’s absolutely beautiful – it takes you a good couple of views before you feel like you’ve seen every inch of this piece of art. It really catches your eye when you’re walking down Ingram Street.
Dunlop Streets: Big Birds
Extremely beautiful mural that spreads out on two streets. The exotic air and electric colors gives you even for a second the sensation that you are at the Tropics!
Argyle Street: Argyle Street Cafe
This great piece on the busy Argyle Street depicts a number of wildlife animals, including an elephant, bear and zebra, enjoying a drink and something to eat, it’s easy to walk by due to the fact that fits so good on the very busy Style Mile of Argyle Street.
