A Drop of Culture: Giraffe of the Day

Sculpture Name: A Drop of Culture 

Artist Name: Blair McCafferty 

Location: Haymarket Station 

Sponsor Name: Burges Salmon 

Designed by Blair McCafferty, A Drop of Culture focuses on Edinburgh’s iconic skyline to celebrate our country’s wonderful capital. The pink sunset highlights the amazing, silhouetted forms found across the city, from Scott Monument to Edinburgh Castle. The paint drips are a reference to the diverse and burgeoning arts and culture found within the city. 

 

Blair aka ‘The Creature Emporium’, is an artist and illustrator from Dundee. Best known for his vibrant and colourful artwork, he loves to create art that is easily understood and enjoyed by all. His work is heavily influenced by street art, graffiti character design and old skateboard art. Having lived and breathed skate culture since first stepping on a skateboard in the late 80’s, he has found that it’s more than just a passion, it ripples through every aspect of his life. 

This beautiful sculpture is sponsored by Burges Salmon, an independent UK law firm that provides their clients with a wide range of services, often at critical moments when astute legal advice and commercial guidance is needed.
