You may have noticed large drawings of teenagers appear on the walls of Edinburgh and it’s all down to Joe Caslin – a recent graduate from Edinburgh College of Art. His project ‘Our Nation’s Sons’ sees drawings of teenagers appearing all over Edinburgh as a way to reestablish young mens participation within society, discussing and questioning the place and preconceptions of young men in society. The huge drawings – some at 40 ft high – have attracted the attention of Edinburgh’s cityfolk to stop and stare.
The project is supported by the Lothian and Borders Police neighbourhood team and Edinburgh City Council’s city centre neighbourhood partnership.
Young men from local high schools helped install the artworks – making their mark on Edinburgh.
