Fifteen of Scotland's Best Art Talents Create Bespoke Coolers as part of a unique art project - Red Bull Canvas Cooler

Hidden beneath the Low Level railway line in Studio Warehouse Glasgow (SWG3) fifteen artists collaborated with some of the most cutting edge bars in Glasgow and Edinburgh to take part in the Red Bull Canvas Cooler project, working on designs to compliment the venues where the fridges will be installed.  

Fifteen specially engineered fridges were waiting for the local artists arrival, providing a blank canvas for their creations.  The artists had a full day to work on their cooler and it was clear that the room was not only full of spray paint fumes but original, raw talent.  Once completed, the fridges were exhibited on the second level at SWG 3 which provided a platform to showcase the unique coolers to friends and family in the art world.

The caliber of artists which took part in Canvas Cooler included talent across all genres of art.  Spray artists such as Amy Whiten, Conzo, Mark Lyken and Ben FiST executed colour and stenciling.  Mosaque and jewelry designer Ruth Holywood covered her blank canvas in mirrored tiles.  There was gitter splashing, oil painting, graff art and illustrating by Gaz Mac, Jen Macfadzean and Erin McGrath. Cammille Lorrigo and Carmen Masson created intricate textile designs and Ali Wylie displayed dimension and texture through digital camouflage.  

So why not check out the unique fridges yourself?
