Best|Ever were our English reps on In Common, a duo of talented artists recently arrived back from a project in The Gambia. They painted a wall next to Moncur Street in the Barras. Their trip north of the border was fraught with problems but they battled through to create an amazing mural depicting an imposing female made of abstracted colours and photo-real features as a symbol of hope and change for the Barras and the East of Glasgow.
In Common was a Festival 2014 project to celebrate the Commonwealth Games coming to Glasgow. 5 murals were painted on the theme of 'Identity' across the city in July 2014. Here is a map to find all of the sites.
Thankyou to Barras Art and Design for accommodating us at such short notice and to all the local people who made us feel welcome.
