Inspiration of the Week – "Tubism"

Standard

So this post isn’t going to be an artist but mostly a sort of visual inspiration that I found mostly by accident. This idea of Tubism simply comes from editing or creating your own version on a London underground map.

So I discovered this article on a site while looking at some stuff about the Situationists, and found the idea quite interesting.

The writer of this article (Pierre Nadilon) was actually a designer himself and made the above images and made them “Tubist portraits”

Although this isn’t a particularly new idea I do like how it’s fun and lighthearted, and I could do my own ones relevant to my project, as I am planning on having postcard sized prints available for people to take away with them and these could be added to give the selection a bit of variety, that’s if I’m even able to make anything like these.

NB – all photographs here have been taken from these websites:
