In most cities with subway, the most common “decorations” are advertisements. And most stations are utilitarian structures that were designed without much aesthetic consideration. While things are totally different in Sweden. Running 110km underground in Stockholm’s Tunnelbana (subway) is the world’s longest art exhibition, with paintings, sculptures, mosaics and installations created by 150 artists since the 1950s in more than 90 of the city’s 100 stations. Stunning murals and playful art installations adorn the cave-like walls and ceilings. Click through to see some some of our favorite Stockholm Metro stations and find out more with the source links!

As a creator of amazingly beautiful wooden sculptures out of old, crashed and broken skateboard decks, Haroshi, is a Japanese wood sculptor. In his works he stacks many layers with all piece elements being connected either in their original form or in shapes to form wooden mosaic, dots, and pixels. After that they’re cut down to size, shaven to get rid of the debris, and afterwards coated with a final glossy finish. Due to his long-term passion for skateboarding, Haroshi knows his ‘raw material’ exhaustively. He searches through thousands of old decks and selects the perfect boards to use for his final pieces. Really unique artwork and bewildering craftsmanship! [source]
I was asked to do a collage image today, and came across these brilliant works done by Tsevis Visual Design. The studio is located in the capital of Greece and specializing in high quality digital imaging and illustration for both editorial and advertising needs.
From Tsevis: MOSAICS, Making mosaics is a true passion for me. I have been developing mosaic techniques since 1997. I am using my own developed scripts and macros as well as semi-automatic and even analog techniques.
