'I am delighted to announce a new initiative to support rising creative talent in the Glasgow North constituency. As part of a new ‘Local Artists Project’, I’m keen to bring some of the diverse, creative and contrasting buzz of the constituency into my Firhill office and promote up-and-coming artists across the area. The new Project will see local artists showcasing their artwork in the constituency office for 4-6 weeks at a time.
Glasgow has one of the most exciting creative scenes in the country, and my constituency covering the West End and Maryhill has a particularly high concentration of artists, musicians and writers. Using my local office in Firhill to showcase some of the best local talent will hopefully be of interest to visiting constituents and of course any passer-by is welcome to drop in as well.
The first artist kicking off this exciting project is Christopher Stevens of Nautilus Inkworks, a self-taught artist who has been active on the Glaswegian urban art and music scene for 7 years.
“Nautilus Inkworks creates original and exclusive unisex streetwear, with an inclusive touch. We are influenced by the people, music and art of urban culture and the cityscapes that we live in and love. Everything that we produce is high quality, low-run, original and limited edition forever, and we encourage our customers to influence what we do next. Our range follows no rules and is constantly evolving to reflect our surroundings, embodying the true spirit of streetwear.
This is streetwear for deep thinkers, designed to inspire pride.
This is why people choose to wear and share our products.”
