Growing up in the 1980's in East Kilbride, it's no secret that the town and its surrounding areas grew a fantastic music scene, with world famous bands like The Jesus and Mary Chain, Primal Scream, Aztec Camera and Orange Juice to name but a few.
The music of the time has had an everlasting impact on the artist Stephen McDermott, otherwise known as "Chookie".
Painted in timeless black and white, Chookie Mix is an exhibition of paintings using acrylics.
Musical influences include everything from Indie, Pop to Rock 'n' Roll and Soul with a few 'guilty pleasures' thrown in for effect.
Paintings include portraits of Leonard Cohen, Morrissey, the Gallagher Brothers, Paul Weller and Justin Bieber and more...
