Rose Street art


For those of us who do all we can to avoid walking the gauntlet that is Princes Street, Edinburgh (even now the teams have been installed it's still a bit of a bun fight) the parallel running Rose Street is a welcome retreat. Relatively pedestrianised (when festival theatre company vans aren't unloading) it is pleasant enough in its own right. 

This year it has been gloriously decked out with Rob Ryan-esque cut out metal work: window coverings, plant containers and murals deck the surfaces. Really weaving in the verses of a Robert Louis Stevenson  poem 'Songs of Travel X'

I am yet to discover the artist of such work... Any clues?
