Fintan Magee was the first arrival for our In Common project and our Australian representative. He painted an incredible piece on a Partick Housing Association building at 18 Purdon Street. The area has just set up a community garden and the flowers at the base of the piece are a link to that and the house and boat are symbols of his Brisbane home. Fintan was a great hit with the people who live there and you can see him getting photos taken with some of his new fans!
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 Partick Housing Association for accommodating us and to all the local people who made us feel welcome.
