Duke Of Wellington & Traffic Cone

Paintings of the Duke Of Wellington may not seem the obvious thing to create artwork from but all it took was a traffic cone on a statue outside the GoMA in Royal Exchange Square in Glasgow to turn this sculpture into n iconic Glasgow landmark.

Glasgow City Art

The Tollbooth Steeple in Glasgow City Centre borders the Merchant City area of Glasgow and is a historical remnant which seems to have lodged itself in the middle of two main roads. This painting was created in quite broad brush strokes and in a fast painting manner which is quite unusual for a Joe Hendry original.

Paintings Of Glasgow

The Duke Of Wellington has become a part of Glasgow Iconography and tourists love him. I love him too. I think that his traffic cone hat sums up the good natured part of Glaswegians, the humour and lets you know that this City although not perfect, really does have a heart – a great big funny one at that.
