Summer came to an end and before I returned home, to the city where I live, I decided to visit Stockholm.
After doing some research, I found that it has got an Underground with several stations with very strong colours and artistic artowrk painted on the walls.
The station that most caught my attention was “Solna Centrum”. Going down the escalators and then looking at them, you have the feeling you have come to Hell.
Searching for the most awesome places to shoot this one came my way. There is composition elements great texture and uniqueness in this location that I’m very drawn to. This station is called Solna Centrum. The bright red paint is like flames. Some people connect it the with the idea of stairs to hell or something from sci-fi movies. This way of decoration is called organic architecture as it tries to use the natural forms of the space.
If you have any questions about the shot just ask.
T-Centralen is one of the Stockholm’s metro station. It can be considered as the heart of the metro system as it connects all three metro lines in the city. Organic architecture is used here as well as other known station like Rådhuset and Solna Centrum.
The Stockholm subway system is said to be the world’s longest art exhibit – 110 kilometers long.Traveling by subway is like traveling through an exciting story …
Stockholm subway T-Centralen station. The architecture itself is equally striking. The T-Centralen station resembles a blue and white cavern, with walls of sprayed concrete made to imitate rock face rather than covering up the shape of the tunnel. Station designed by Per Olof Ultvedt in 1975.

Traveling on a city’s subway system is never expected to be an exciting experience. But this could not be farther from the truth in the Swedish capital Stockholm, where artists have transformed the city’s subway into a gigantic kaleidoscopic art exhibition. Stadion station – this one is cave-like and has vivid blue color with rainbow paint.
“Last train from Inferno” – Stockholm has one of the most beautiful metro system in the world. Several stations were decorated by artists and this one is cave-like and has vivid colours. Solna Centrum – the most fascinating metro station. 🙂
So I decided once again to make something new… Here is the first photo of my “subway collection”:
Stockholm subway – Solna centrum station stands out for its cavernous, bright red ceiling that seems to “weigh down” on the platform. So I was there late night and deep in the bowels of Stockholm (tunnelbana) subway system… setting up to take this shot of the station 🙂
