London Underground Art

Private Paintings of the Tube

It's a shame the following paintings aren't public on the London Underground itself, but they are very good.

The first was sent to me by
Ralf - The Cartoonist and shows the almost photographic like quality of artist Michael Mau with his painting "The Northern Line". Michael Mau lives and works in Hamburg.

If you visit Ralf's site you'll be able to see a great level of detail in the picture.

The second was sent by a regular commenter who would prefer to remain nameless and he saw it in The Times on the 15th October. Basically it's a mural in the offices of Marshall Wace, one of the largest hedge fund groups in Europe. (No, I have no idea what a hedge fund is - maybe it has something to do with topiary like in Little Britain)

Marshall Wace Tube Mural - From The Times 15th October

Marshall Wace seem to be tube geeks and like the tube so much they commissioned a graffiti styled London Underground mural for their Mayfair offices.

I like the way the roundel on the Tube has their company name in it.
