Artist's description:

One of a series of original wood engravings exploring the dynamic atmosphere and distinctive architecture of the London Underground. This piece depicts a platform-edge view of Blackhorse Road station on the Victoria line. A rat dominates the foreground, unnoticed by the lone figure waiting for a train. Also visible in this work is Hans Unger's distinctive tile motifs of a black horse.

As a former Tube commuter myself, I know that - packed full of busy travellers every day - the Underground can very easily be taken for granted. By choosing unusual angles and perspectives of near-deserted stations, my aim in this series of artworks is to help the viewer to rediscover and better appreciate these incredible subterranean man-made structures.

NB: Actual image size is 13x18cm. The work is hand-printed by the artist on a larger sheet of paper to allow for mounting and framing. This piece is also available framed - please contact the artist for details.
