ART BELOW - TURNING AD SPACE INTO ART SPACE. In an attempt to reclaim public space from the ever-reaching fingers of ad-land, ArtBelow has made it possible for artists to exhibit their works in space used normally for advertising.
It doesn’t matter if you’re an artist, art buyer, or passer by. ArtBelow is bringing art to the masses in London – and it’s underground.
And that is their motto.
I exhibited in Feb/March and Art Below are seeking more artists to submit their work for consideration for the April/May show.
Here's the details:
For two weeks in April/May the works of 25 specially selected artists will be on display in major underground stations across the capital. 'The underground is a place where many Londoners will spend part of their everyday life - we want to give the individual the opportunity to contribute to that environment' : Ben Moore
As well as giving artists access to advertising space in the underground, ArtBelow also runs an on line art gallery for all the artists who exhibit on the tube. At ArtBelow it is either possible to buy original art work or high quality poster prints of the work.
If you would like to know more about how to see your art work, words and images on a 1 metre x 1.5 metre poster in a major tube station then visit the artbelow website and fill in the on line application form.
The next campaign is due to begin in late April / early May.
I have a passion for painting which I have been able to develop these past few years when I have finally become old enough and wise enough to stop doing what I was told and start doing what I truly wanted to do. I heartily recommend it.
