London Underground Decorated

When passing through some of the London Underground stations, it is all too easy to think that they are extremely unkempt places (which is true for the most part). A rare handful of stations participate in a program encouraging ‘Platform Art’ aiming to make public transport that much more enjoyable.

The Gloucester Road station is currently exhibiting work painted by Chiho Aoshima, with the entire piece titled ‘City Glow – Mountain Whisper’. Its bright pictures are painted in what looks like classic Japanese Otaku style, and its apt theme of a cityscape transformed into human-like characters really lightens up the entire station.
