LONDON UNDERGROUND: ARTISTS' TUBE MAP
Boy is New York behind the times! Apparently the London Transport Authority has been commissioning artists to design the cover of their underground map since 2004. How cool is that? And the artists they have worked with are big names: such as David Shrigley, Liam Gillick, Barbara Kruger and now (bottom-most image) Yayoi Kusama. Oh and did I mention that the Whitney Museum is hosting a Kusama retrospective this summer? As the queen of polka dots, Kusama is pretty much my artistic hero. I can't wait to see the show!
In the meantime, I would advise you to check out all the other artist maps for Art of the Underground here.
