ELLA Bryson was on hand to witness the unveiling of her Marvellous Mural.

The 16-year-old was the winner of a ScottishPower Foundation competition with the Citizens Theatre to mark the completion of a 10-month long project, The Gorbals Vampire.

It culminated in performances of a new play by Johnny McKnight performed by a community cast of more than 50 at the Citizens.

Secondary school students from across Glasgow were tasked with creating their own modern-day version of the vampire and Ella came together with local street artists, Art Pistol, to see her depiction of the Glasgow legend come to life.

The artwork will leave behind a lasting legacy of the production in the Gorbals for local residents, many of whom took part in the project.

Ella’s winning design was selected out of 115 entries by a judging panel.

Hillhead High pupil Ella said “I had never heard of the Gorbals Vampire before I started working on my design so it’s been brilliant to research the story and all of the characters associated with it, especially because it happened right here in Glasgow.

“I’m hoping to apply to study costume design at university so it’s brilliant to see my artwork come to life, and to be able to say there’s a piece of my art on display in the city for everyone to see.”

Guy Hollands, Associate Director at the Citizens, added: “The Gorbals Vampire has been a 10-month long project which has involved local people, school children and the general public in a range of workshops, art activities, exhibitions and creative writing competitions inspired by the story.

“We were delighted when ScottishPower Foundation wanted to celebrate their support for the project with the Marvellous Murals competition, providing yet another way for young artists to engage with this extraordinary Glasgow story.”
