BOA has partnered with Art Below to find twenty masterpieces by twenty different artists, to feature in the Virtual Gallery shown on a 3-metre screen in Liverpool Street, on the Westbound Central Line platform from Monday 18th till 25th April.
Artists who uploaded their work by 1st April were automatically entered into the competition, judged by Ben Moore of Art Below.
With the Virgin London Marathon, the Royal wedding and the Festival of Britain 60th Anniversary Celebrations, as well as Art Below’s 5th Anniversary; the city will be a hive of excitement and activity this April.
BOA’s exclusive screening will bring a sense of serene beauty, akin to a real art gallery, to many travelers from all over the world in, what is expected to be, a busy month for the Capital.
The twenty winners will be among the first artists to showcase their work digitally in one of London’s busiest stations, potentially reaching 3 million people.
