KELVINBRIDGE STATION

WHERE IS IT: At the end of a row of tenements on High Street, just south of Cathedral Precinct

This space, located underneath the stairwell adjacent to the Kelvinbridge subway station, is an ever changing canvas in the city, and the haunt for many of Glasgow's local street artists.



The one depicted in photos comes from 2014. It shows a squirrel poised on a skull, and is the work of well know street artist Smug.


Glasgow based street artist Sam Bates a.k.a. Smug has been practising his craft for over fifteen years, having developed a photo-realistic style that he has freely exhibited up and down the country.


Smug’s well-earned reputation has allowed him to earn a living from his art, having been commissioned by Glasgow City Council to do a series of pieces promoting the 2014 Commonwealth Games when the city won the hosting duties in 2008.
