Londonist Underground: Homeless By The Tube

Click for full size.

Continuing our series of original art inspired by subterranean London.

Today’s more subdued installment, by Pete Jones, begins as a colourful fairytale London skyline. But as the eye is drawn farther down the page, towards the foreground, the palette becomes more sober. The artist describes his work:

I call it “Going Underground”. It represents the faceless homeless, living in the shadows of the bright lights of the big smoke. The thin lines of colours falling through the picture depict the underground tube lines.

We’ve now reached the closing date for our Londonist Underground competition, the best images from which have now been chosen, and will go on show in the Bishopsgate Institute shortly. However, we’ll keep the series running online for the best new submissions. Please feel free to send any further subterranean drawings, paintings or photos to matt@londonist.com. Your subject could be anything from subterranean London, and doesn’t have to be Tube related.
