The Glasgow City Centre Mural Trail has some new additions! The most recent artworks can be found in Midland Street, underneath Glasgow Central Station opposite the Arches. The latest installations were created by artist James Klinge (aka Klingatron) and include three portraits. Initial reaction to these murals has been very positive and a number of publications have already featured them. Of course, these aren’t James’ first works to be showcased within the City Centre Mural Trail and eagle-eyed observers will already be familiar with his previous murals which include such local favourites as, Glasgow’s Tiger, Crocodile Glesga, as well as his Study of a Woman in Black series. We are sure that the installations in Midland Street will become just as popular.
Consequently, it’s perhaps no surprise that the Glasgow City Centre Mural Trail continues to gather interest from all over the globe, with the Australian Gourmet Traveler recently bringing the project to the attention of its readers. The magazine used the murals as an example of the unique nature of Glasgow’s offer and encouraged its readers to explore the city and its vibrant artwork.
As part of the annual Glasgow Doors Open Day programme, Glasgow City Council will once again be offering free guided walking tours of some of the murals contained within the City Centre Mural Trail. This year, these activities will be taking place on the 21st & 22nd of September. Interest in these events is always high so make sure to book early to avoid any disappointment. For more information about these tours please visit the Glasgow Doors Open Days website.
We hope to see you there!
