A NEW mural by a popular Scottish graffiti artist has been unveiled at a hospice in Glasgow.

Danny "EJEK" McDermott's art has taken centre stage at the entrance of the ward at the Marie Curie Hospice.

EJEK's iconic urban style mural adorns the atrium of the ward, blending Glasgow’s renowned graffiti art with the charity’s iconic yellow daffodil.

The mural, which took about 24 hours to create and was publicly unveiled on April 11, aims to offer a warm welcome to residents and visitors.

It also pays homage to the hospice's staff and volunteers.

EJEK said: “I was really honoured to be asked to create a mural for Marie Curie.

"The organisation has touched the hearts of so many families not just here in Glasgow, but right across Scotland, so it was a real privilege to give something back to the staff and volunteers.

"I think it really sums up the resilience and spirit of the incredible team at Marie Curie and provides a warm welcome to those coming into the hospice to visit their loved ones.”

EJEK is well known for his contributions to Glasgow's street art scene including mural of Marvel creator Stan Lee in the Gorbals, and he has painted around the world in France, New York and Spain.

Catherine Maclean, special events manager at Marie Curie, said: “EJEK’s design quite literally takes it to new heights and transforms the atrium entrance.

"We wanted to create a welcoming view that encapsulates the essence of our Glasgow hospice and the warmth of the team of professionals that care for our patients and their loved ones.

"He has not only captured the spirit of the hospice so well but also that of our wonderful team while also putting our iconic daffodil symbol at the heart of the design.”

In addition to this project, he is also creating a unique art piece for Marie Curie’s annual Brain Game held in Glasgow on October 3.
