Albion Street Mural Project.
6274 were commissioned by Merchant City Properties to design a small tiled mural for their empty Albion Street, Glasgow site.
We worked with local museums to source images of the area from Glasgow’s past.
The Merchant City was once one of Glasgow’s main Fruit and Veg trading hubs and the images collected depict this perfectly.
Our graphic tile installations are designed to last the test of time and leave behind a legacy for future generations.
Please feel free to take a look back in time next time you walk down Albion Street and let us know your thoughts on one of Glasgow’s only tiled public art murals.
North Lanarkshire Council wanted to redevelop Motherwell town centre.
Pedestrian access to the town was via four covered underpasses that were in need of upgrading. 6274 were commissioned to create a more welcoming entrance to the town centre for both residents and visitors alike. We sourced a technique that meant photographic images could be applied tile to produce a permanent image glazed in to the tile. The resulting images were not only striking but would withstand temperatures from -40ºC up to 50ºC.
We worked with super market chain Asda to photograph individuals from the local area. The result was a large colourful section of peoples faces that can be seen above.
We worked with Glasgow School of Art, photographers and the local community to pull together different themes for each of the underpasses.
The underpasses in Motherwell, Scotland still looks great today.
6274 is one of the only companies in Scotland to specialise in this regeneration service – no project is too big or too unconventional!
We would be delighted to hear your comments and ideas regarding graphic tile installations.
