Subway-tastic! Ever Been to Stockholm, Sweden?

Check Out the Swedish Capital’s Subway Station Art!

Silvertoad are gob-smacked at the scale of this ‘functional’ art exhibition. Covering over 60 miles of subterranean rail systems, the walls of the Swedish capital’s subway system and it’s stations have   been transformed into a vibrant, cavernous gallery by over 150 artists over the past 60 years.

 

Over 90 of its 100 stations have been embellished with sculptures, mosaics, paintings, installations, engravings and reliefs since the 1950s, many using organic architecture which leaves the bedrock exposed and unsculptured.

See below for more examples and schedule a trip to this Scandinavian metropolis for the real thing. We can’t wait to experience it!
