Art Below the innovative ‘Pop Up’ contemporary art gallery that cleverly utilises poster space, in tube stations and on billboards, are exhibiting the works of over 60 artists from over 12 countries in 20 stations throughout the London Underground throughout the ‘Jubilee’ month of June. The work will also be showcased as framed prints at the Underground Gallery located in Charing Cross tube station (6th – 11th June) and at the Hospital Club a creative arts venue based in the heart of Covent Garden (19th – 30th June). The project is spearheaded by Ben Moore.
For the fifth year running Art Below thrive on providing artists with access to advertising space in the London Underground where nearly 2 million people travel every day. The mission is to enrich the everyday life of the traveling public by giving fresh insight into the very latest in art, illustration, photography, fashion, whilst at the same time providing a platform for emerging talent. Such exhibitions involve taking over entire walkways, escalators, platforms and passenger lifts, at home and abroad in Berlin and Tokyo with further expansion planned for 2012 in USA and Asia.
Art Below run an ongoing creative membership program where benefits include being able to choose exactly what London tube station you would like to have your work displayed in and for how long. “We play host to a rich and diverse portfolio of talent, including leading illustrator Jon Burgerman, 3D Artist Jeffrey Robb, and the world’s number one street artist Banksy. We also support new emerging talent and most recently exhibited work by the 20 finalists of The Saatchi Gallery’s New Sensations across the whole length of a Regent’s Park platform to co-inside with The Frieze Art Fair, 2011” stated; Moore.
