The artist Mark Wallinger has created a new work for the London Underground network as part of its 150th birthday celebrations.

Labyrinth comprises 270 unique works, one of which will be placed in each station on the London Underground network.

The first 10 have been unveiled – take a look

Today marks 150 years since the first operation of the London Underground, on January 9th 1863.  I love how the Underground has always taken art seriously; the TFL organisation Art on the Underground is in charge of commissioning public art specifically for the system as well as organising display of other work around the network.  The highlight for me came in 2006 with Rut Blees Luxemburg’s Piccadilly’s Peccadilloes project which you should Google immediately.

Above are some of the creative covers which adorn the cover of the official tube map which you pick up from the stations.

Happy 150th, LU!
