The Artists

Artists from across the country have been commissioned to paint our two hundred life-size Oor Wullie sculptures in every possible design you could imagine.

The trail acts as a showcase for our wonderful 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 designs 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.
