Allan Richardson is much loved and well known local artist, who can often be seen working on his latest project in the streets of Glasgow. He always takes the time to stop and answer any questions people may have about his work - and usually he has a good story to tell about the buildings he is capturing on canvas. allansart.com
Perfect gifts for relatives and friends
Allan is such a popular Glasgow character that he is featured in Alasdair Gray's mural in Hillhead Underground, where he is depicted in his other role – keeping the streets of the West End sparkling clean.
A self taught artist, Allan captures some of Glasgow's most iconic buildings in his own unique style which makes us all yearn to be there. His art is particularly popular with Glasgow ex-pats and is a great way for them to have their own bit of Glasgow in their homes.
As well as the prints, which are signed and dated by the artist, Allan is available for private commissions. Contact Allan directly if you are interested in commissioning your very own unique Glasgow scene or visit his website to purchase one of his Glasgow scene art prints.
You will also find beautiful images of wonderful scenes throughout Scotland, including Harris, South Uist and Seamill.
Images are on matt finish heavy weight art paper using the latest inkjet technology with Epson ultrachrome K3 inks. They have a non fade life of at least 75 years. The print sizes can be A3 or A2 and will be shipped in a postal tube. allansart.com
