Tube Map

British artist Paul Noble has received widespread international recognition for his monumental eight-year project – the meticulous depiction of a fictional city called Nobson Newtown.

Working in pencil, his wall-sized drawings offer aerial perspectives over a fantastical cityscape.

His commission for Art on the Underground depicts a troubadour, or travelling musician and storyteller, rendered in pencil, which alludes to themes of travel and experience and the thousands of journeys Tube customers make every day.
