Pablo Bronstein: 150th anniversary of TFL

One of a series of artworks commissioned to mark the 150th anniversary of Transport for London, Pablo Bronstein’s drawing takes inspiration from the architecture of the city’s underground network. ‘In particular I quote from the interior architecture of the early Metropolitan Railway, such as the wonderful statuary and Piranesi­-style stonework at Baker Street,’ the artist says. ‘Decorative details that are found within the oldest parts of the Tube are put instead on the outside of a building. The design harks back to the optimism of the grand 19th-century engineering projects, as well as the gloom of the high Victorian era.’
