While travelling on the tube the other day we passed through Gloucester Road where the Japanese artist Chiho Aoshima has an installation at the moment called City Glow, Mountain Whisper as part of the 'Platform For Art' project. It's in the form of 17 panels cut to fit the archways, painted in her distinctive style, and it's there till January next year so if you're in London and on the tube you should go and have a look.

This chop together of a panorama isn't particularly neat and tidy, and there's perspective errors all over the place, but I kind of like them. It's also not shrunk down for the web too well, but the original is much bigger - have a look at it here...

I've got some detail shots as well that I'll probably post in the next few days. It was amazing to look at. I'd love a room in my house painted in that style! :)
