Recent years have seen an explosion of street art in Glasgow, providing a welcome burst of colour in this often grey city, which in the rain stakes makes my previous haunt of Seattle seem more like an all-the-year-round, 24/7 sun-kissed tropical hot spot.  The playful nature of these colourful murals – part of the City Centre Mural Trail – is a fitting complement to the city’s “gallus”  and welcoming character. 

 

And this mural of a taxi floating at the end of a cluster of balloons, titled ‘World’s Most Economical Taxi’, which can be found in Mitchell Street, is so detailed that artist Rogue-One even went to the lengths of painting bricks onto the wall. He later commented, with just a touch of irony: “Can’t believe I painted a wall to look like a brick wall just because I wanted a brick wall!”
