I decided to kick off my very first #StreetArtSunday series’s in Scotland’s second city Glasgow , it’s where once a month I travel somewhere with great Street Art on a Sunday and show you all my great finds over on @ishootstreetart , this is a look at Glasgows finest ., where the local council has created a great street art trail, all within walking distance of the main city centre.
The first piece was produced in 2009, and the portfolio of work has expanded over time , with the help of a Glasgow City Council mural fund. There are 19 stops to explore on the trail, and can easily be completed over a couple of afternoons.
Here’s a few of my favourite pieces on the trail , definitely worth getting out and exploring, on your trip to Glasgow.
