£6,950.00 – Sculpture size: 18cm x 44cm x 58cm
Whilst on tour in Canada in 2007, Billy was inspired by Montreal’s drizzling rain to buy some felt-tip pens and a sketchbook. Over time, his drawings of little islands became intricate yet honest shapes – and Born On A Rainy Day began.
This is the first-ever sculpture from the collection, and is inspired by Billy’s past as a welder on Glaswegian dockyards.
Speaking on the series, Billy says: “I just want to keep honing the thing that I’ve got and make it better and better – that’s all. That’s the only ambition I feel.”
