Nuart Aberdeen: John Byrne In Conversation

Part of the Nuart Aberdeen 2019 Season



Described by Billy Connolly as “Scotland’s favourite artist”, playwright, stage designer and celebrated Scottish Artist John Byrne (RSA) will give an 'In-Conversation' interview hosted by the BBC's Fiona Stalker to kick off this years Nuart Plus series of talks, lectures and film screenings.

Perhaps best known as writer of The Slab Boys Trilogy of plays which explore working-class life in Scotland, and of the TV dramas Tutti Frutti and Your Cheatin' Heart his art was propelled into the public eye when he was the first artist to paint the ‘Gable End ‘ of a Glasgow tenement block in 1975. His mural, “Boy on dog” became a familiar site to anyone racing along the then new Clydeside Expressway. The mural is regarded as being one of the first “street art” murals ever produced in the UK.

His career spans over 60 years and his artwork has adorned walls, theatre roofs, album covers for the Beatles and Gerry Rafferty as well as critically acclaimed paintings which hang in museums, galleries and private collections across the world.
