Rebecca Scott is a visual artist based at Many Studios, who works in mixed media using experimental mark making. Her work is mainly inspired by personal experience and her own writing. The artist enjoys collaborative work and is involved in several community arts ventures. She is an active member of the GAG collective which seeks to make art more accessible and serve as a tool for social cohesion.
My work often takes on dark themes and I enjoy incorporating skulls and nature to symbolise life and death. I take inspiration from nature, films and artists and mainly use ink to create my pieces as I like the range of tones it can achieve. I also generally like to work in a very limited colour palette for my skull illustrations with just a pop of colour to engage the viewer more. Finally, I also enjoy life drawing and sketching when I’m out and about as well as painting so my art is often varied and my pieces can be quite different from one another.

Jonny Mowat Stuff
Jonny Mowat Stuff is stuff by Jonny Mowat. He takes inspiration from residing on the internet and from reading books with pictures in. He peaked in 2002 when he drew his family as if they were characters in the film Spy Kids.
Glasgow artist working in black ink and watercolours.
Print maker getting the creativity out my head and onto paper.
Designer and photographer, documenting Glasgow through a lens. My work usually consists of street photography capturing the colour, landscape, and texture of the city. Also sometimes take pictures of my dog.
Francesco’s fine art photographs reflect on how time and space overlap and how our perception is made up of several layers of reality. His major inspirations are the Italian photodynamism, multiple exposure techniques and the phenomenological relation between vision, object and consciousness. His journey started with a Fujica film camera and now he works with both film and digital media.
I am a illustrator and designer, now based in Paisley after studying Illustration in Glasgow for three years. I create abstract pieces including bold, geometric shapes, mainly pulling influences from my environment, surroundings and personal experiences.
My work looks at areas of natural science, in particular geology, ecology, glaciology, and geothermal dynamics, in relation to global warming and our relationship to the rest of the natural world. I look at patterns of connectivity, strength and durability in the natural world as a metaphor for a long purview of time, community, and our part within broader environments. I am interested in particular in the way communities form, develop and bridge, and the ways can we adapt for sustainable living.
In the images I create I hope to capture a moment of truth and clarity both for the subject of the picture and the viewer. My work is figurative and narrative in design. I studied at the Glasgow School of Art and continue to live and work in the city.
Gavin is a graphic designer working in small creative agency in Glasgow. Designing for print & web, with a focus on branding. He has worked on everything from grammy nominated bands & international clothing brands to small local businesses.
I’m a photographer and designer based in the southside of Glasgow. My photos are mostly of odd little moments that can vanish seconds after I’ve pressed the shutter.
I’ve been trying to be more mindful and appreciative of the things in life that make me happy. On a recent trip to London I became aware of the rituals I go through with my friends and family. Unique moments that I only experience with one or two people. They’ve got a feeling of comfort, a connection from one meeting to the next. I’ve made a series of illustrations about some of the rituals that bring me happiness.
Artist and designer. Likes staying indoors unless there are nice people and good art. Often uncertain of himself, but you’d never know it to talk to him. “A great guy” – Bruce Linnemann.
I started ClydeBuilt in 2015, designing and printing ethical streetwear in Glasgow. Angsty and unpolished I used ClydeBuilt to connect with creative people in the city. It led me to meet and work with hugely talented people. Interesting, engaging people full of positivity and potential. We all want the same thing, to be able to do what we enjoy and create work we love.
ClydeBuilt Exhibitions are a showcase of talent from in and around Glasgow. We present artists from a wide range of fields, some new, others more well known. Everyone deserves the opportunity to show their talents and we’re excited to give a platform to the amazing artists we have on show.
