The Whitechapel Gallery is hosting a show of sketches and proposals for new public artworks that will be installed at stations on the Elizabeth line later this year. This is underground art of the future:
She of the infinity rooms and pumpkins is installing a massive stainless steel thingymajig at Liverpool Street.
British artist Shawcross is weaving his magic with metal, constructing this sort of screw-like doodad on the other side of Liverpool Street.
Tottenham Court Road is your gateway to Soho, and Gordon’s work is a big, bright reminder of the area’s neon – and perfectly seedy – past.
Evoking memories of train travel of old, Almond’s work at Bond Street will feel like its always been there. Just like the M&S.
Periton’s Farringdon artwork is inspired by the diamonds of Hatton Garden and the metalwork of Smithfields.
Joffe’s paintings of passers-by outside Whitechapel station will become permanent reminders of local life.
Rovner’s screen at Canary Wharf will reflect the stations’s architecture and the flow of commuters.
Wright is bringing some bling to Tottenham Court Road with loads of intricate gold leaf business along the escalators.
Finch is installing a glass canopy full of clouds in Paddington. Because London’s not cloudy enough, is it?
