Glasgow Street Art: Ingram Street Car Park

Glasgow street art: Picking mushrooms

Glasgow is a creative city where artists and musicians will feel at home. These scenes are part of a huge four seasons wildlife design by street artist Smug: if you can spot the parked cars in the squirrel picture, they’ll help give you a sense of the scale.

I’m sharing this for this week’s photo challenge: (Extra)ordinary. It’s on the buildings adjoining Ingram Street Car Park in Merchant City as part of Glasgow’s Mural Trail in the city centre.

      When a city understands how to celebrate street art and finds great spaces for it, the city seems to come to life. Hope you’re having a wonderful time!

        I read about it the newspaper a couple of days ago. I misunderstood. I thought it was the grand unveiling today and then a week long celebration. But it is a week of painting! A few artists were on site today and murals beginning to happen. I will have to go back next week to see the finished works!

            Yes. I am hoping to try and pop back at least a couple of times this week and photograph the progress. a post is the making! Won’t be much of a chore as there are some great restaurants around there as I discovered today!

      He paints people too. I watched a film of him painting on YouTube – it’s amazing how he can create something so massive, to scale, freehand.

    They’re awesome. It’s amazing how much street art transforms a space. I live in Newcastle, Aus a regional city with an industrial past that is in the middle of reinventing itself. We have an annual ‘hit the bricks’ festival when 15-20 blank walls are transformed by street art. It has increased the vibrancy of our city ten fold!

      It would have been nice to have had a little longer to explore – I remember one crossroads in particular where I was being pulled in several directions but could only choose one.
