Glasgow School of Art: 6 famous musicians who studied at Glasgow School of Art

These are the famous faces who studied at the Glasgow School of Art

Many famous faces have attended the Glasgow School of Art with the likes of Robbie Coltrane and Muriel Gray being part of the art schools alumni.

The Mackintosh Building faces an uncertain future after the building was seriously damaged by fire in 2014 and then destroyed by a subsequent blaze in 2018, which left nothing but the shell of the notable Glasgow building. There are plans in place to rebuild ‘The Mack’ but there is no end date on completion at time of writing.

Music fans can thank the Glasgow School of Art for producing some of the city’s finest bands as both Travis and Franz Ferdinand emerged from the art school back in the day with members of both bands being former students at the school.

Here are some of the famous musicians which attended the art school.
