The Scottish Gallery – Edinburgh – Classical Graffiti

This year Martin was invited to exhibit at The Scottish Gallery,  Edinburgh Classical Graffiti following a great response to a few of his pieces shown there last year.

The Scottish Gallery Exhibition is open until September 2017.

‘Classical Graffiti’ is an exhibtion of individually designed and carved stone artworks.  These Portland stone hand carved wall panels hang side by side. One with classical Latin translation of modern song lyrics. The other deeply hand carved with contemporary lettering with the same lyrics. Classical Graffiti!
