Subway Art | Solna Station by Serwan

The Stockholm subway system is said to house the world’s longest art exhibit running 110km underground. To be precise, over 90 of the city’s 100 stations have been decorated with paints and sculptures by 150 artists since 1950s. What really fascinates me is the fact that every single decor represents a specific era in Sweden’s history whether it’s political, industrial or cultural issue.
One of the most beautiful stations is arguably Solna Station on the Blue line. Created by artists Anders Åberg and Olov Björk in 1975 where Sweden was at its peak of Industrial era. these illustrations reflect the political issues in 1970s of the increase of industrial zones and destruction of the environment. The prominent colours are red sky and green spruce forests painted along 1km of the wall at this station.
