Created and installed in the 1980s, Scottish sculptor and artist Eduardo Paolozzi’s tiled murals have long adorned the walls of Tottenham Court Road station’s ticketing halls and platforms. With refurbishments under way in preparation of the new Crossrail train line, Transport for London have not yet given an actual estimate of how much of the thousand-sqaure metre mural will be lost, only that some most certainly will. Ahead of the refurbishment, the French artist Daniel Buren has been commissioned to make new works for the completed station.
