Call to artists to design new mural at Paisley Gilmour Street station

Tuesday 25th September, 2018

Paisley artists have been asked to send in their designs for a brand new mural to be created at the town’s Gilmour Street Train Station – and help put Paisley on the map.

Paisley First, the town’s Business Improvement District, are looking for an artist to design, project manage and deliver an original high-quality artwork that will have a positive impact on the town and engage the over four million passengers who pass through the station each year.

The new artwork will sit alongside the stunning Welcome to Paisley Mural, which was created by local artist Caroline Gormley last year.

The neighbouring wall is approximately 7m in length and 2m in height and the concept for the second mural is a tourism map of Paisley with a modern twist.

Paisley First Chairman Graeme McGowan said: “More than four million passengers pass through Gilmour Street, Scotland’s fourth busiest railway station, every year.

“We are looking for an artist who can design and produce a high quality artwork that reflects the town centre’s vibrancy and showcase the many different things there are to do, see and enjoy in Paisley.

“The aim is to provide a welcoming environment for people using the station, brighten up a long corridor and to engage travellers.”

Proposals can be handed into the Paisley First office at 1 County Place, Paisley, or submitted electronically to ask@paisleyfirst.com before 9am on Monday 22nd October 2018.

Please note – artists must either work or live in Paisley, or have prominent links to the town.
