Frightened Rabbit’s Scott Hutchison honoured with mural in Glasgow

Mural goes on display at the city's Barras Art and Design this week

Frightened Rabbit frontman Scott Hutchison has been remembered with a mural in Glasgow.

Hutchison passed away earlier this month at the age of 36. Tributes have been paid by fellow music stars including Frank Turner, Biffy Clyro, Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard and more. In a statement, the Scottish band has said the singer “leaves a legacy of hope, kindness and colour that will forever be remembered and shared”.

Now, artist Michael Corr has painted a mural of Selkirk-born Hutchison near the Riverside museum in Glasgow. “After last week’s news about Scott, I wanted to make something to pay tribute to him,” Corr explained.

The artist has since revealed that the work will go on display at Glasgow’s Barras Art and Design from Tuesday (May 22) to Sunday (May 27).

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. 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!)

Following news of the musician’s death, Hutchison’s family described him in a statement as “passionate, articulate and charismatic, as well as being one of the funniest and kindest people we knew” and “wonderful son, brother, uncle and friend”.

“Depression is a horrendous illness that does not give you any alert or indication as to when it will take hold of you,” the statement added.

“Scott battled bravely with his own issues for many years and we are immensely proud of him for being so open with his struggles.”

“His willingness to discuss these matters in the public domain undoubtedly raised awareness of mental health issues and gave others confidence and belief to discuss their own issues.”
