A recent trip to the capital city of the Czech Republic unearthed some great street art including this discovery in an underground tube station.
A visit to the Mustek station revealed a cross between a Dr Who and Blake Seven studio set with lots of concrete and yellow moulded spheres along the station.
Some remedial works were ongoing in the station so a small portion was blocked off and some amazing street art had been commissioned to brighten up the area for all the thousands of passengers who whizz past each day.
First up was this cartoon-esque work showing layer after layer of blocky zips and clasps in a variety of prime colours with thick black outlines by Mikulas.
Around the corner was this large predominently red piece featuring a representation of an interlocking block structure with a blue outline.
A poem had also been added to the piece but remember don’t blink whilst reading it!
Obviously the areas either side of the track are rather small hence you just can’t get far enough back to take a full width photo and add to that the huge number of people using the station and the hoardings taking up space – means I was really lucky just to quickly get these pics.
The first piece of street art that greets you on entering the station are these space-like or maybe spaced-out characters complete with the title ‘Hate free zone’ by artist X-Dog.
This piece extends around a few walls and also features some mushrooms, a headphone-wearing pipe-smoker and even a skeleton.
Loving those smilie acid faces in the glasses!
And saving the best til last – more work from Pasta Oner and another comic creation with a pop-art edge adorning the walls of Prague featuring the tagline ‘You’re a grown up – don’t panic!’
Featuring another Mickey-esque hand pressing a button which has the label ‘Adult’ on it whilst the other female character hides behind a rabbit mask.
