New exhibition to showcase prolific graffiti artist's work
New work by American artist Ema to be found at Recoat and across the city

Graffiti artist Ema has had her work showcased on buildings and trains in the likes of Paris and Barcelona to name but a few cities across the continent. However, citizens of Glasgow only have a few more days to take in her new exhibition Breuckelen after a month-long stop off at the Recoat Gallery in the city's West End.

For the past 10 years she has lived in New York and managed to present her work throughout the city: both inside the gallery in exhibitions in Chelsea and Brooklyn as well as large-scale murals across Queens, Manhattan and the Bronx.

Amy Whiten, who with her partner Ali Wyllie run the Recoat Gallery, said: “The exhibition has been great. Visitors are really amazed by the quality and intricacy of the paintings on show and by how consistent the installation is as a whole.“

Even though the gallery enables visitors to have a closer look at single art pieces of prints, ink paintings and mural pieces, the whole exhibition still feels like one whole piece of art.

The Recoat Gallery in the West End invites visitors to visit the exhibition and discover a collection of genuine works representing a time of soul-searching and creative explorations by Ema.

The artist's work can also be found on a mural at Boardwise on Argyle Street in the West End. Her highly visible painting of a blue Dropman on the mural at Kelvinbridge has already been painted over, however.
