L'art prend le metro - Passage Inconnu I

L'art prend le metro - art takes the tube. The artist Francois Schuiten . The tube station: Porte de Hal.

The first in a 2 part series: Le Passage Inconnu. This mural (cartoon mural) was created in 1993 in the style of Schuiten's imaginary cities (Les Cités Obscures).

As I have been working on this series for a while (granted only recently in an organized way), let me introduce the concept to you: when the tube was established in Brussels, the city / government decided that art should not miss from this project.

Thus every tube station in Brussels has become a small art exhibition in itself. Only Belgian resident artists have been chosen, and the art displayed includes paintings, sculptures, photos, stained glass paintings, etc. Previously in the series of l'art prend le metro:
Eddy Merckx tube station.
Coovi tube station.
Heysel tube station.
Parvis de Saint Gilles tube station.
Horta tube station.
