David Hockney's London Underground Redesign Upsets The Internet
Renowned English painter, David Hockney, takes over the Piccadilly Circus station but didn’t quite receive positive feedback from the internet.
Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, launched a massive tourism campaign entitled Let’s Do London in hopes of reuniting residents and visitors with the great capital of England. To set off the initiative, Hockney creates a new public installation, by redesigning the iconic TfL logo at the Picadilly Circus station.
Hockney’s reinterpretation is an old-school Microsoft-paint twist on the trademark logo in yellow and purple with the ‘s’ in ‘circus’ hanging below the rest of the name. Khan took to Twitter to share the latest design and the internet had a field day with their opinions.
See below for a roundup of reactions to Hockney’s take on the Piccadilly Circus redesign.
