Metropolisson is a creative project by photographer Janol Apin that takes us on a literal journey through the Parisian metro system with clever puns and creative costumes you’ve just gotta see. Featuring more than 100 images, this series of photographs was shot through the 1990s and features Apin’s friends posing in costume in the underground, playing with the station names.
There’s an exciting project happening in Naples’ underground metro stations involving artists, designers and architects such as Alessandro Mendini, Anish Kapoor, Gae Aulenti Jannis Kounellis, Karim Rashid, Michelangelo Pistoletto and Sol LeWitt. Called the Art Stations Project, the initiative involves filling stations with amazing art and then opening them up for public viewing. One of our favourites is the Toledo Metro Station (pictured) which opened in September 2012 and was designed by Oscar Tusquets Blanca. You could say I’m a little jealous. The only art I come across in Sydney’s underground stations is graffiti.
