Metro Morning artwork

Anthony Lowe’s tiled mural ‘Metro Morning’ depicts travellers and Metro staff aboard rush hour Metro trains.

In making the work the artist photographed his subjects during the morning rush hour and their life-sized portraits were then incorporated onto the mural. The final work combines a stylised rendition of the trains with photographic silk screens of the passengers.
