You don’t even need to leave tube stations these days to get your daily dose of culture, with Transport for London’s Art on the Underground’s Print Shop set to pop up in Piccadilly Circus station from April 8-19. You may well recognise the prints from last year’s 15 for 150 project celebrating the Underground’s 150th anniversary but now’s the chance to get your tube-tastic mitts on them. There’ll be a choice of 15 sets of signed and numbered limited-edition prints from artists including Idris Khan, Sarah Lucas, Wolfgang Tillmans and Gillian Wearing. You might want to bring more than just spare change though as prices will range from £60-£550, with all money going back into the program to help fund future arty tube works.
