ANDY SCOTT (1964 - )

The sculptor Andy Scott was born in Springburn and attended Glasgow School of Art.  His company, Andy Scott Public Art, is situated in the west end and was established in 2002 as an offshoot of Scott Associates Sculpture & Design, with which it shares studio facilities.  He has undertaken commissions for a broad variety of clients world-wide, and many of his works are on public display throughout his native city, including the Ibrox Disaster Memorial, the Cairn at Blochairn, and the Athena at Yorkhill.    For those Glaswegians with a Filignano connection, Andy also made a sculpture of Mario Lanza sited in the actor/singer’s home town in Italy.

Examples of his sculptures which can been seen in the east of the city include the Phoenix (2001) at Easterhouse, the Carmyle Heron(1998), Tollcross Park’s Highland Cow (2002) & main entrance depicting the poem “Who Killed Cock Robin?” (2004), Cranhill’s Sirens and other mythical figures  (2001), City Park’s “Industry & Commerce” (2002) and “The History of Glasgow” tableau (2002), and perhaps most famously of all, the Heavy Horse (1997) beside the M8 at Easterhouse.  Apart from the City Park tableau, these are all constructed from galvanised steel.
