As well as helping to brighten up unloved buildings, the Glasgow Mural Trail – part of the Style Mile city centre strategy – is also helping to support young artists.  But it has a very serious side to it, helping to rejuvenating streets and revitalise buildings and vacant sites that are looking a bit tired and reincarnating them as beautiful pieces of public street art.

 

And taking influence from the Beastie Boys and Run DMC, Rogue-One’s Hip Hop Marionettes graces the side of this Strathclyde University building on John Street, adding more than just a splash of colour, life and humour to what was an otherwise drab, plain brickwork to brighten up our streets.

 

And as one reader eloquently put it in his comment in our previous entry, it certainly beats a time and era in Glasgow when the only thing we would see daubed with paint on the side of buildings would be the once ubiquitous gangland catchphrase of “Tongs ya bass”!
