NUART KICK OFF: JOHN BYRNE (RSA) IN CONVERSATION WITH FIONA STALKER
Join us at The Belmont as we kick-off our program with a celebration of one of the founding fathers of Scottish street art!
Described by Billy Connolly as “Scotland’s favourite artist”, John Byrne (RSA) will give an in-conversation interview, with journalist Fiona Stalker. Perhaps best known as the writer of The Slab Boys Trilogy of plays which explore working-class life in Scotland, and of the TV dramas “Tutti Frutti” and “Your Cheatin’ Heart”, John Byrne was propelled to notoriety as the first person to paint the ‘Gable End’ of a Glasgow tenement block in 1974. With a career spanning more than 60 years, his art has adorned walls, theatre roofs and pop culture (through album covers for the Beatles and Gerry Rafferty), as well as critically acclaimed paintings which hang in galleries and private collections around the world.
