If you read our last 'Londonist Loves...' post you'll already know how much we like the shop Playlounge

Now we have another excuse reason to go down there and drool over their toys, because as of today the shop is hosting the Underground Resistance exhibition.

The idea behind the show is to "exhibit the true talent" behind UK graffiti, those people that the advertisers do not use and therefore don't get exposed to the general public all that often.

Each artist has been asked to customise a model of an NYC subway car (in homage to the movement which started the whole thing), an idea which originated with Klim Kozinevich, the NY-based owner of toy company Drastic Plastic.

The NY version of the exhibition Tag The System took place earlier this year. You can see some of the artwork on this page.

The exhibition is at Playlounge, daily until 6pm, and runs until the end of January next year.
