London's Stations Never Looked This Good

Artist Gail Brodholt creates artworks all about travelling. But rather than somewhere exotic like the Caribbean or South East Asia, she finds beauty in the humble commute.

Whether it's train tracks in Battersea or a Northern line platform, Brodholt makes them shine.

The Northern line is never this colourful. Copyright Gail Brodholt

Her works are all linocuts — carved out of linoleum, painted over and then impressed on paper.

They are stunning visions of London and bring a sense of Romanticism to public transport.

The Central Line is also looking pretty swish. Copyright Gail Brodholt

There's also a lot of fun to be had in trying to guess the stations in the pictures we've posted. Let us know your best guesses.
