Marija Tiurina Re-imagines the London Underground as Fantastical Milieu
Mind the Gap is a new complexly layered watercolor from the mind of illustrator Marija Tiurina, which melds fictional scenes from above and below ground.
An insanely detailed work by Marija Tiurina, jam-packed with both realistic and imaginative characters existing in a parallel universe to North London. A slew of creatures and characters derived from reality crawl aboveground while the colors peel away to reveal the underground, patrons holding onto a long wormish creature meant to denote the train. Inspired by Tiurina’s daily commute on the Central line--one of the deepest and hottest lines in the city--this is a true masterpiece translating a grating reality into something fantastical.
