Art by Glasgow’s Banksy ap­pears across city sites

Evening Times - - NEWS - By HOLLY LEN­NON

A POL­ISH street artist has picked Glasgow’s streets as the can­vas for his new project.

An artist go­ing by the name Fuse, from Poland, has been spray paint­ing thought-pro­vok­ing art­works around the city since the be­gin­ning of Au­gust.

Among his works is an over­weight po­lice­man hid­den on Stock­well Place, a fam­ily clutch­ing at an atomic bomb on York Place and a preg­nant mother and child on Robert­son Lane.

Other pieces can be spot­ted in Bridge­gate and Maxwell Street.

Fuse, who wishes to keep his/her iden­tity hid­den, will be build­ing new in­stal­la­tions in Glasgow un­til the end of the month.

The artist’s spokes­woman ex­plained: “Street art gives the in­di­vid­ual an op­por­tu­nity of read­ing the artist’s mes­sage with­out con­ven­tion­al­ity.

“Tak­ing ad­van­tage of free­dom and multi-mean­ing of this kind of art al­lows Fuse to sim­ply reach a wider au­di­ence and let them in­ter­pret his/her art freely or take a deeper look.”

Fuse’s mis­sion is to start con­ver­sa­tions on the is­sues of spir­i­tual, po­lit­i­cal and so­cial sig­nif­i­cance.

In­spi­ra­tion be­hind the thought-pro­vok­ing art comes from every­day life, with Fuse fo­cus­ing at­ten­tion ex­clu­sively on “cre­at­ing art that searched through the hid­den mean­ing in the every­day life of the hu­man soul.”

The next round of in­stal­la­tions are said to ex­press is­sues con­cern­ing the city.

Mem­bers of the pub­lic have com­pared the art­work to that of English graf­fiti artist Banksy, whose work has also found its way into Glasgow.
