Underground Art

Who would have thought that underground stations could ever be considered artistic? From my experience, they’re usually dingy, claustrophobic spaces that breathe body odour. Not somewhere you’d expect to stubble across the work of top architects and artists…

But it seems that not all underground stations are so suffocating. Trawling through the travel section of ‘The Telegraph’ I came across a photo gallery of Europe’s most impressive underground railway stations and they certainly make the notion of commuting a lot more exciting; Toledo Metro Station in Naples is like a glittering ice cave whilst Stadion station in Stockholm has a rainbow painted on the ceiling, who knows you may even be able to find a pot of gold at the end of it – anything seems possible in these stations.

Hit the link to see the beautiful world of station art…you’ll be surprised to find a couple of London stations included in the list, though they are by far the least impressive (well-tried tfl):
