Loose Ends: Mitchell Street mural

I only learned later that this mural is actually called ‘Honey, I Shrunk The Kids’. I am always here for 1980s movies references, to be honest. This mural connected with the Billy Connolly mural a couple of streets away, because it is a mural in Glasgow, naturally enough. This one features a woman looking through a magnifying glass, as if scooping up the people on the street. I usually see it in passing from Argyle Street, Mitchell Street a street I don’t traverse very often. It is another work by Smug, whose works are spread throughout the city centre, including those of St. Mungo near the High Street and the animals on Ingram Street. I like that this is a depiction of a positive female role model, plus it encourages looking beyond the obvious, which is always a good thing in life and Glasgow in particular.

The next connection might be another one of Smug’s works or another piece of street art around Glasgow or indeed beyond. The idea struck me that another city in Scotland is particularly blessed with street art, one I would be visiting a few weeks later…

Thanks for reading. Another Loose Ends post will follow next week. The Loose Ends page has links to the other parts of this series.
