Black & white print of ‘The Knight Map’, 2022, Will Knight


Back & white print of Will Knight’s ‘Knight Map of Glasgow’, commissioned by Glasgow City Heritage Trust and inspired by Thomas Sulman’s 1864 ‘Birds Eye View of Glasgow’. Looking north from the Southside of the Clyde, it is an incredibly detailed snapshot of modern day Glasgow.

Will studied Architecture at the Glasgow School of Art, and this training has informed his approach to understanding the dynamic relationship between people and place. He has spent the last ten years observing, recording and interpreting Glasgow’s built environment – from the celebrated work of Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson to the ubiquitous tiled tenement close; from some of the city’s cherished eateries to the scratch bakery and local newsagent.  Every subject is explored through measurement and drawn by hand, elevating everyday buildings so that they are revealed afresh.

Overall size of print is 100cm x 48cm with large margins, perfect for mounting and will look spectacular once framed.
