Coatbridge Monklands Canal 1999 Commission

A site specific artwork created for The Waterways Trust Scotland as part of an ongoing revitalisation of the Monklands Canal.
The artwork draws on the industrial history of Coatbridge and the Monkland Canal fusing imagery of iron and steel, steam power, smoke and Graffiti Typography.
The 12 mile long Canal opened in 1794 with the prime purpose of transporting coal and iron from the coal mining areas of Monklands into Glasgow. It was the most successful of the five Scottish canals and of major importance to the development of Coatbridge, Calderbank and East Glasgow.
