Billy Connolly releases six new pieces of art at Glasgow art gallery

Billy Connolly has released six new pieces of art at Castle Fine Art on Queen Street

Sir Billy Connolly is one of the most popular artists at Castle Fine Art and the latest instalment of his Born on a Rainy Day collection will resonate even more deeply with everyone who loves Billy, because this release is so personal.

The six new colourful limited edition artworks include pieces which see him recalling his Glasgow childhood, living in the Scottish countryside and a bit of Scots history alongside an insight into his favourite hobby, fishing, as practised near his Florida home.  

He also remembers visiting India for his episode of the TV series Who Do You Think You Are? and a visit to his Scottish home by his close friend, the late Robin Williams, so these latest releases see Billy revealing his personal stories in his art. 

The pieces are ‘Step We Gaily’, ‘Wee Warrior with Targe’, ‘Extinct Scottish Cat’, ‘Permit From Memory’, ‘Baby Flier’ and ‘The Charmer’, and every limited edition piece is signed by Billy himself, priced £1,250 each or as a set of six at £6,250 framed, £4,950 unframed.
