Leith mural: 'You are all worth your room on this earth' - Uplifting mural inspired by The Proclaimers brings smiles to Edinburgh locals
A new mural by a local creative studio and inspired by a Proclaimers smash hit is bringing smiles and positivity to Leith.
Leith-based ‘Studio Something’ has created the colourful piece of art for all the community to enjoy after a difficult year.
The writing on the mural, ‘you’re all worth your room on this earth’ is an adapted lyric from iconic Proclaimers hit ‘Sunshine on Leith’.
Studio Something said: “We’ve always been based in Leith from when Jordan and Ian found their first office in Tolbooth Wynd on their lunch break, to moving to the oldest building in Leith (St Ninian’s Manse).
"We live here, work here and have dreamt up our ideas in coffee shops and bars all around the area (Carrier Quarter’s pies are the best inspiration fuel).
"Ian’s grandma even used to swim in Leith docks - which we can’t imagine happening no
"But, this past year has been a bad one for so many people.
"With many feeling forgotten about, isolated and the inequality in society being more obvious than ever before.
“So we wanted to create and donate something for our local community that helped lift spirits.
"Adapting a lyric from Sunshine on Leith we have crafted a positive message to let everyone in the community know that we are all worth something.
"We hope you like it and remember; you are all worth your room on this earth.”
Studio Something produce creative art, strategies and content for anything from TV shows and films, to community pieces like this one.
