Mural-Ingram-Street-Car-Park-02

Originally from a small town near Sydney, Australia, he believes that Glasgow suffers from having a creative space for fellow street artists and graffiti experts. His well-earned reputation has allowed him to earn a living from his art, having been commissioned by Glasgow City Council to do a series of pieces promoting the 2014 Commonwealth Games when the city won the hosting duties in 2008.

 

This piece was created during the Merchant City festival in 2013, and depicts the four seasons in a picturesque Scottish country scene, featuring an array of animals, including a polite nod to the infamous photobombing squirrel. The use of seasons is slightly ironic, as Glasgow often experiences these four seasons in one day.
