'Tag Tile' artwork (detail), Longbenton Metro Station

  • Description

    "'Tag Tile' by Simon Jones & Rob Belilios (2001) consists of a number of panels on the footbridge at Longbenton Metro Station [[4744982]]. Their work incorporates fifty different abstracted tags and marks inspired by graffiti designed by local youngsters. The tags are housed within repeat speech bubbles and screen printed onto pastel coloured tiles. The overall tiled surface of the footbridge seeks to be representative while abstracted, and is coupled with coloured filtered lighting to transform the interior bridge space. http://www.nexus.org.uk/art-transport/commissions/tag-tile-simon-jones-rob-belilios" Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2015.
