Friends of Xile: RuDog

We catch up with the Glasgow based artist


Having been around since 1984 Xile has seen some talented people walk through our doors and today we have caught up with a long term friend of the store, Glasgow based artist, RuDog. Having just completed an exhibition at Glasgow’s Vacant Space RuDog is about to go down under for an Australian show and we wanted to get him in to see some of the new works before they head across the world.

Having previously been featured in exhibitions across the globe from Melbourne, London to NYC, as well as a residency in Barcelona, RuDog's art resonate his opposing styles, from scratchy profiles to abstract surrealist pop art. Citing Tom Wesselmann's colour & composition & Egon Schiele's figurative angst & line work as an inspiration, this is certainly something to behold.

Having just sold out a show in the West End of Glasgow the next stop is Melbourne's highly acclaimed B Side Gallery (30th Nov - 5th December) and then on the return from that he has accepted representation from Art Pistol Gallery.  This is one artist to keep your eye on. In celebration of RuDog’s upcoming Australian show we asked him to pick out some of his favourite styles from the new Autumn Winter ‘18 collections and take them for a spin. You can see the picks below alongside a selection of some of the RuDog art which will be making its way to Australia.
