About Stuart Murray

Stuart Murray’s work is highly observational with a strong element of social commentary.

Among the themes he has explored/is exploring are gentrification, homelessness and begging, working and the workplace, politics, drinking and pub culture.

Like many modern artists, Stuart Murray has two bases, spending his time between The Calton and Dennistoun. He finds this arrangement extremely stimulating.

Much of his work has appeared in the form of publications. His many previous publications include Gateway To Work published by Glasgow School Of Art in November 2014, Bucharest, published by Tramway, and In Pubs, a large format book published by Street Level Photoworks. The most recent publication, Glasweigians,  appeared in October 2015 published by Hog’s Back Press of Edinburgh. For more details of publications and exhibitions see the C.V. page of this blog.

This blog site is used to publish new drawings based on everyday life, as it happens at the shops, on the street, in the pub etc.

    Well done again wi ‘ the latest sketches, we’ve probably aw met these folk, heard their speil but didnae really took it all in, tae you wrote them doon, funny how that changes the whole context of banter, we probably dismiss maist of it, without taking the time to actually enjoy some of the true wit (or lack of it) behind the blunt delivery that Glesga folk put oot( withoot even thinking too hard ) fae the 3 pint poets, N’ jagged up Janes

    keep on writing stuff,
    cheers Sortedman1

    Hello Stewart, You may remember me from the printmaking course (ended 2002), if you are who I think you are, Euan (deceased), and others had a few bevvies at the School bar….lost contact with everyone since wife died, however, almost all of my sketch books are complete and intact…I may look them out to reflect….
