An exciting new Transport Poster Art programme led by London Transport Museum and sponsored by leading outdoor media owner Clear Channel is revitalising the capital’s long-standing tradition for celebrating the history of transport poster art.
The artworks feature London’s events, activities and venues and have been created by excellent contemporary artists, illustrators and graphic designers. As well as appearing across the London Underground network, the posters can be seen on Clear Channel bus stops, including their digital Adshel Live network. The first posters, by artist Paul Catherall and featuring the new Routemaster, are now on display across the city until the end of March.
Andrew Morley, CEO at Clear Channel, said:
“Clear Channel is delighted to support the London Transport Museum’s Contemporary Poster Art programme, building on the success of the Year of The Bus. We’re also thrilled to be able to bring these wonderful posters to London’s bus shelter network allowing Londoners to enjoy them right across the Capital.”
Sam Mullins, Chief Executive at London Transport Museum, said:
“The Transport Poster Art project celebrates and continues a legacy of over 100 years of world famous poster art on the Underground – the world’s largest art gallery. We are delighted that Clear Channel’s support is enabling us to commission the next generation of iconic transport posters.”
