Glasgow Artist Allan Richardson – Local City Scenes

glasgow botanic gardens allan richardson


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.

Capturing Glasgow’s West End

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. Alasdair was a big fan of Allan Richardson and it was he who first introduced me to Allan and his art.

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.

    Hi Allan,

    i’m looking to get a sketch for my sister’s 30th bday.

    i’m looking for landscape of the glasgow skyline, looking from the clyde, with an etching on a bridge of her and her and her partner’s name.

    can you help ? if so, can you give a rough guideline of a price ?
