Pride of Paisley Artists

Local artists and designers are taking part in Paisley’s BIGGEST ever, public participation art event and enjoying the chance to create something special for Pride of Paisley.

Wild in Art events provide a unique and high-profile platform for the talents of artists and local creative communities. For Pride of Paisley, 3D fibreglass lion sculptures provide the quirky canvas for artistic expression. The sculptures, which will be sponsored by local businesses, lend themselves to a raft of multimedia approaches.
