World Underground Maps and Schematics by Chris Gray

Clockwork Gallery

Clockwork Gallery showcases work from the Underground collection by Chris Gray, who lives and works in West Yorkshire, England.

Underground is a series of fantastical underground rail networks (after Harry Beck) that connect each part of the globe to the others. What would you think if you could jump on a tube in London or Tokyo and arrive within an hour in New York? I suppose you’d hope to get a seat and not be sat next to a nutcase!!

Amongst other things, I create artworks based on the theme of the world underground map. The idea for a world underground tube came about when I was travelling far from home, so I thought I’d write about the thought process in relation to the physical journey that inspired it. This journal can be read on this site.
