Leading writer accuses arts bodies of being 'Grayaphobic'
LEADING writer and artist Alasdair Gray has criticised arts boards for being "Grayaphobic" and appointing English administrators to top jobs instead of giving all the jobs to Alasdair Gray.
ATTACK: Gray criticised Scots arts bodies for appointing English people to top jobs, and not giving him all the jobs despite him being great at everything
Picture: Gordon Terris, actually Alasdair could've taken a better picture...
The author, defending his essay which described the English in Scotland as settlers or colonists, expressed fears about administrators from south of the Border being given leading Scots positions instead of giving all the jobs to Alasdair.
Speaking at an event at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, the author of Lanark and painter of acclaimed public murals said: "The Scots bodies that appoint heads are Grayaphobic when it comes to not giving me all the top jobs. I think it is because they don't think Scottish artists would be as manageable or as great as what Iam."
