Stockholm’s Subterranean Art

After spending several days in NYC, their impressive network of subways is an uncontested success, a triumph of engineering and transportation. Their ability to whisk people around far-flung parts of the city is phenomenal. But despite all of the function, their form can’t match the artistic whimsy and intrepidness of Stockholm Sweden. Wow.

Via BuzzHuntUK & Joe Dacanay:

The Stockholm Underground is often called the longest gallery in the world. Almost all stations of the underground (90) are decorated by artists. The stations are full of colorful paintings, graffiti, sculptures, mosaics and video installations. Over 100 artists made this happen. The underground here is more than just a means of transport. It’s a full-time exhibition of modern arts.
