TfL's Art of the Underground

We're thrilled to introduce an inspiring narrative featuring the remarkable work of artist Barby Asante through her project "Declaration of Independence," presented as part of TfL's Art of the Underground (AOTU) program. AOTU, a collaborative initiative between TfL and artists, aims to reimagine the way people engage with our dynamic city and transport network.

Asante's extensive visual art collection offers a profound reflection on the impact of declarations and policies on our everyday lives. This compelling project sheds light on the experiences of women and non-binary individuals of colour, highlighting their ongoing struggles for fairness and social justice. You can witness Asante's powerful artwork at multiple stations, including Docklands DLR and Stratford station. The images are credited to Benedict Johnson, and the individuals featured in the first photo are :
