Art Below aims to enrich the everyday life of the traveling public by giving fresh insight into the very latest in contemporary art whilst at the same time providing a platform for emerging and established talent.
Art Below is a London based public art enterprise, founded in 2006 by brothers Ben and Simon Moore. With a wide range of international artists and its various campaigns in cities worldwide, the organization has an important position within the movement of contemporary art in public space.
Art Below uses billboard space in underground stations to display artworks in London and overseas. The group has nurtured an international community of artistic talent and has displayed the works of over 3,000 artists in London, Tokyo, Berlin, New Orleans and Los Angeles, with future shows planned in Istanbul, Miami and Paris.
We play host to a rich and diverse portfolio of talent including Banksy, Damien Hirst, David Bailey, Mr.Brainwash, Jake and Dinos Chapman, D*Face, Yinka Shonibare, Alison Jackson, Paul Fryer, Mat Collishaw, Antony Micallef, Charming Baker, Billy Childish, and Ben Eine.
Art Below run an ongoing creative membership program where benefits include being able to choose exactly what station you would like to have your work displayed in. Our underground exhibitions run hand in hand with group shows where the artists exhibit their work in a gallery setting. Previous exhibitions have been held at The V&A, The Candid Arts Trust, The Hospital Club and Somerset House.
