SWG3 unveils final mural in Glasgow arts trail

ARTS and events venue SWG3 has revealed the final mural in its Glasgow arts trail.

Some of Scotland’s best-known street artists – including Smug, KMG, Mark Worst, Molly Hankinson, and Tragic O’Hara – have worked on the project, alongside local communities.

SWG3’s street arts and graffiti initiative, Yardworks, has organised the trail, which is designed to link communities in Govan, Partick, and Yorkhill.

The venue plans to create a “Street Arts District” within the wider Glasgow Riverside Innovation District (GRID).

More murals are planned for the city in the future.

Gary Mackay, SWG3 studio director, said: “Yardworks GRID has been an extremely exciting project so far.

“We have been able to work with some amazing artists to bring together the stories of the community through some colourful additions to the landscape.

“Public art can create opportunity, dialogue, and space for sharing stories and we hope to strengthen and deepen connections in the next phase of development and continue to embed community narratives into public art programmes that brighten up the streets of our city.”
