Today, despite the rain, I gave myself a self-guided tour of Glasgow street murals based on the guide here. I haven’t included much commentary below because anything I say will just be regurgitated from this guide. If you’re at all interested in street art, I do recommend reading it. It’s not very long, I promise.
Grab your Frends because I’ve got some city jams to go with your street art.
I think you could probably find all of them in an hour or two but the weather was less than great and I got started around 12:30 so I took a tea/lunch break halfway through. Now let’s get started. We’ve already seen 1 and 2 because they are on my street.
1. The Worlds Most Economical Taxi
2. Honey, I Shrunk The Kids
3. Glasgow’s Panda, who lives just across the street.
4. Followed by these friendly urban woodland creatures at Fellow Glasgow Residents
I didn’t make it to 14 BUT I WILL so keep your eyes peeled for an updated post! Instead, here are some picture of my neighbors on my way home. If you are really interested, there is some great information about the Hand Shadow Puppets mural (#14) here. I’m also looking forward to finding the “Phoenix Flowers” in the M8 underpass here.
