EK East Kilbride unveils new art installation

Leading street artist James Klinge has created a series of original paintings inside the centre. The life-size pieces form a unique gallery for shoppers to enjoy as they walk from Olympia into the centre’s new multi-million pound leisure development, The Hub, EK.

Alongside seven restaurants, a renovated ice rink, and the daring Hi-ride walkway, The Hub, EK is also home to two of the largest canvases in the series, all of which highlight the centre’s position as a leading fashion destination.

Centre Director Ian McLelland said: “The Hub is an outstanding new development and we wanted James to create 12 paintings that not only summed up the centre’s vibrancy, but made our visitors stop, take a minute and think about what they were looking at. It’s very rare that people can get this close to art and we hope the pieces captivate our visitors, create debate and provide them with something unique to enjoy.”
