Stockholm metro art: Thorildsplan

'The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude'.- Friedrich Nietzsche

Hi all

New week, new metro stations!!!! And I present to you Thorildsplan. This station has tiled walls inspired by pixelated symbols of computer games and iconic computer symbols - Pacman anyone? These were created by artist Lars Arrhenius in 2008. 

When you get to the station you find a beautiful warm greeting by way of a huge sun relief which is behind the tracks. This was done by Huck Hultgren in 1975.   Onto pictures

So sweet

This is such a happy station, I mean all these bright colors and happy images. It was my first time to get to this stop and I couldn't believe all these fun little icons. I will hopefully go back for another quick stop.

Peace, Love and Art
