Stockholm Metro Station, Stockholm, Sweden. Unofficially known as the „world’s longest art gallery“, the metro station has some exciting paintings. First underground painting was painted in 1970s. The colorful rugged surface of the walls and ceiling gives a surreal impression of flaming space.
90 of 100 stations exhibit paintings of almost 150 artists. The initial goal was to bring art to public by using the public space. The idea worked out very well and today this might be the most popular metro station in the world. And the most exciting, making metro attractive and cozy.
