Ashland Green Line artwork shows off vintage look of CTA station

A Chicago artist who features the CTA in much of his work has new pieces mounted on the railings of the Ashland Green Line station for the month of October.

Nick Fury uses white-out tape on paper to create his stark, distinctive pieces.

For this series, Fury juxtaposes vintage and modern. The station, built in 1892, was designed in a Queen Anne style with a Victorian Gothic influence,says Chicago Artists Month. Vintage touches such as cupolas, finials, wood trim, ornate railings, and diamond patterns are seen throughout the station.

His artwork starkly shows those influences.

  • I see that #1 in his gallery (following the link) could have been in The Blues Brothers, except for the curtains and Carrie Fisher having blown up the flophouse.

    Also, your #3 doesn't work.

  • That's not art, it's drafting!
