Faith47 from South Africa painted a beautifully subtle piece for our In Common project in Ibrox. She worked through the sun and the rain to create an intriguing portrait of a powerful woman. A string is tangled in her fingers and a wrought iron feature guards her. A sentence runs along the wall that says, "THAT ONE CAN GIVE WHAT ONE DOES NOT POSSES, OH THE MIRACLE OF EMPTY HANDS".
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 World Wide Tropicals for accommodating us and to all the local people who gave us positive feedback and made us feel welcome.
