Alumnus gets to work on new Clutha mural

Share this story

A UWS graduate has helped to give the murals surrounding the Clutha Bar in Glasgow a re-design. 2005 graduate Jody Kelly is one of the artists giving the murals, which were painted on the boards of the Clutha following the tragic helicopter crash on 29 November 2013, a revamp as the old ones have been damaged by the weather.

Speaking to the Glasgow Herald about the project Jody, who is based in Troon, said he was inspired by the city’s past and present. “The painting depicts a double portrait of male and female and in two different time periods past and present to represent the people who have come and gone in the pubs of Glasgow.”
