This is Ross Muir - a successful, full-­time artist based in Glasgow. Ten years ago, Ross lived a very different life.

He was a full-­time drug addict, from the age of about 15 until he was 28. During this period, he lived with his dad, who was “at his wits’ end”, says Ross.
Eventually Ross managed to get clean, and “became obsessed” with painting.
Within a couple of years he took the plunge and quit his day job to focus on art.

But two weeks later, his life was about to be thrown into disarray again. “I went to visit my dad with a print, it was like the first print I’d got made. It was a really big deal for me, I’d got the print framed and was going to give it to my dad and I found him dead. It was brutal man, it was horrible.” Ross suffered for a while after the loss of his dad, but is glad he got to see him recover from his addiction and take his passion for art full­-time. “I’m doing him proud. I’m righting the wrongs from the past”. #rossmuirart #art #scottishart #bbcscotland #scotland #artist

This is gonnae be something special! This #Hogmanay #GregorFisher will celebrate the 40th anniversary of #Scotch&;Wry by paying homage to the late, great #RikkiFulton. #bbcscotland #bbchogmanay

When ex-drug addict Ross Muir was gifted a set of art supplies, he began to experiment, but never thought it’d end up becoming a full-time passion.
“I was painting like a 5-year-old to start with, but after a few months, I got good. My pals were like ‘you gonnae be an artist?’, taking the mickey out me.”
Eventually, he bit the bullet and gave up his day job. But Ross had no idea what kind of success was round the corner when he posted his painting of Van Gogh in a trackie top online, calling it ‘Square Gogh’.
“Somebody just messaged and says, ‘the Van Gogh’s just went viral’. Ten thousand on this, ten thousand on that. The young team tapping 20 quid aff their maw to get wan. Everybody wanted wan, and they still dae.”
Since Square Gogh, Ross’ career has been on an upward trajectory, with his unique take on classic artworks being bought by the likes of Gerry Cinnamon and Tony Curran.
