Frightened Rabbit mural in Glasgow for Scott Hutchison

To remember the colourful and creative soul of Frightened Rabbit’s Scott Hutchison, a local artist has revealed a stunning mural near the Riverside Museum.

It’s been nearly two weeks since the tragic news that Scott lost his fight with depression.

Scottish artist Michael Corr has revealed the eye catching and unique mural on his Instagram account. Located at BaAD (the Barras Courtyard) you will only be able to see the mural until Sunday 27 May 2018, from 12 to 10pm– although people are already calling on the mural to be a permanent fixture in the Glasgow landscape. The mural has recently been moved from it’s original home at the Riverside Museum.

Posting on his Instagram account, Michael shared: “Just finished this mural near the Riverside Museum in Glasgow. After last week’s news about Scott, I wanted to make something to pay tribute to him and @frabbits. The piece will be on display for a week if you’d like to see. A massive thank you goes to @scottishstreetfoodfestival @bacardi and @artpistol for giving me the canvas! A special thanks to @nikkimcwilliams for those flawless squares (and the wee girl who helped paint Scott’s shirt!)”

UPDATE: Scott's piece is going to be moved later today (Monday) from the Riverside Museum as there is construction works just now and needs to be kept safe from damage. The piece will be transferred to BAAD (Barras Courtyard) and can be accessed as of tomorrow (Tuesday) from 12-10pm Tuesday-Sunday. Just finished this mural near the Riverside Museum in Glasgow.

Scott had continually been open with his mental health struggles and issues of depression. Relating to his troubled experiences with humour and grace, Scott touched the lives of many people in Glasgow, outside the city and across the world.

Although the mural will only be on display for the next week fans and well-wishers can pay their respects at King Tuts Wah Wah Hut, where a book of remembrance is available for people to share their memories and experiences of Scott.

Remember, if you’re experiencing poor mental health there is help and support available.
