THE TIGER

WHERE IS IT: On a wall on the North bank of the River Clyde, next to the South Portland Street Suspension Bridge

The original Tiger mural was sponsored by Tiger Beer and was painted as part of the Brewery’s Lucky Eight project to celebrate the Chinese Year of the Tiger. It was then replaced by the more wild, realistic version.



The mural was designed by John McFaul of McFaul Studio depicts the element of fire, while other projects around Britain were themed around the other elements. It took John and his team three days to complete the Tiger, which can be seen on a wall on the north side of the river, next to the South Portland Street suspension bridge. It shows the Tiger chasing a ball of string, and wraps around three cornered walls, which means you can view the mural folded in on itself.
