Frightened Rabbit frontman Scott Hutchison was sadly found dead earlier this month, and now the late Scottish singer is being remembered with a mural in the band’s home base of Glasgow.
The mural was done by Scottish artist Michael Corr, and it will be displayed Glasgow’s Barras Art and Design starting Tuesday (May 22), Pitchfork points out. You can see the mural for yourself below.
UPDATE: Scott’s piece is going to be moved later today (Monday) from the Riverside Museum as there is construction works just now and needs to be kept safe from damage. The piece will be transferred to BAAD (Barras Courtyard) and can be accessed as of tomorrow (Tuesday) from 12-10pm Tuesday-Sunday. Just finished this mural near the Riverside Museum in Glasgow. After last week’s news about Scott, I wanted to make something to pay tribute to him and @frabbits The piece will be on display for a week if you’d like to see. A massive thank you goes to @scottishstreetfoodfestival @bacardi and @artpistol for giving me the canvas! A special thanks to @nikkimcwilliams for those flawless squares (and the wee girl who helped paint Scott’s shirt!)
Hutchison was found dead on May 10 at the age of 36.
In the wake of his passing, his family released the following statement:
Depression is a horrendous illness that does not give you any alert or indication as to when it will take hold of you. Scott battled bravely with his own issues for many years and we are immensely proud of him for being so open with his struggles. His willingness to discuss these matters in the public domain undoubtedly raised awareness of mental health issues and gave others confidence and belief to discuss their own issues.
