About Father and Sons - The Exhibition

A Renowned artist is bringing a free and sentimental exhibition to Glasgow in homage to his late dad.

The artist was a student at the Glasgow school of Arts and was also taught by his father Alexander Stuart Dakers an artist aswell.

The show is not only designed to display both of the creator's works but is also to help anyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one.

Alexander explained: “I want this show to attract people who may have lost someone.

“It is an exhibition for those who have lost a person they love. I want people who may be grieving to come along and for this to help them feel some kind of connection.

For the exhibition, I wanted to clash both of our artworks together and show our pieces in one place.

“It is a sentimental show about loss and beauty of life.”

Art work of Alexander will be framed by designer, Keith Lauffer – Alexander’s childhood best friend. The handmade wooden frames are made from old whisky barrels.

The exhibition was seen on Sky Arts TV and in London recently.
