The Artists

Artists from across the country are being commissioned to paint more than two hundred life-size Oor Wullie sculptures in every possible design you could imagine.

The trail will act as a showcase for artists’ designs, attracting regional, national and international visitors, as well as residents, to discover the wonderful world of Oor Wullie and fundraise for Scotland’s children’s hospital charities.

The unique designer will transform our streets, parks and public spaces into a fun, free outdoor art gallery, taking people on a journey of discovery this summer.

Designs submitted are highly imaginative and impactful covering lots of art forms from traditional to new media, fine art to illustrative, graffiti, mosaic and even interactive. Whatever form they take, we know they’ll add drama, fun and a creative flourish to Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail.
