Prague Metro Station gets Beautified by Popular Street Artists

andel01

Prague’s Public Transport is using art to combat graffiti. It’s a paradox, artists accustomed to breaking into Prague subways stations to paint are now being welcomed in as part of the Prague Public Transport’s new program to defeat unwanted/illegal graffiti.

Popular Prague street artists, Pasta Oner, Jan Kaláb, Michal Škapa aka Tran, and X-Dog were invited to beautify the walls covering the new elevator systems in the busy Andel underground station.  It’s the first legit street art in Prague’s metro system.

Prague Public Transport plans to expand the program to include other metro stations and public spaces overrun by illegal graffiti by the end of the year.
