    At Snug we have a dream, that everyone should have access to high quality art. Original work, incredibly affordable prints and exclusive selections reserved for those who want strictly limited edition pieces.

    Snug is here to find the right art for you; you dream it, we either find it in our rapidly growing network of artists, or we commission it, at the price you want to pay. Not sure what you want? Then take some inspiration from our catalogue; we make it easy for you to find the artwork you like for your home or business, in the comfort of your home or business.

    In our portfolio we have abstract, figurative, oil on canvas, pencil on paper, prints on silk, and many other beautiful pieces for you to chose from.

    The name Snug comes from well fitting, bespoke. Operating as art tailors we make choosing artwork a personal experience, we understand the importance of choice to allow you to find the art that represents your personality.

  • Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.

    Rory PriceBorn 1989 ScotlandLives and Works in Glasgow ScotlandGraduated 2012 from The Glasgow School of Art

    Prices formative years were spent living in the Shetland isles. A remote and isolated island community located half way between Scotland and Norway. Such a location nurtured his imagination. From an early age, art was to become a vital means of expression and communication.

    He studied at the Glasgow school of art from 2008-2012. His degree show was awarded The Steven Campbell Memorial, for the poetic creativity in his exuberant display of paintings.

    Prices approach to making art favours a spontaneous, imagi-native, unplanned and often unhinged approach. Works often feature surrealist or expressionistic imagery, with a focus on the stranger aspects of the human psyche.

  • Clusterfuck Concerto Age 22; an Anthem for Spatial Delusion.

    2012Oil on board198 x 122 cm

    This painting is loosley based on the temptaions of St Anthony, acting as both a protrait of the artist and a portrait of the world in which he inhabits: A self protrait as a city. It is an early attempt of channeling the energy of Henri Mattisse and Heironymous Bosh into a choherent vision. Smoking pidgeons, pulsing hearts, neon nudes, sex, death, and flamoyance all included.
