Chris Gall Illustrates The Average Commute

If you're a New Yorker, you've likely eyeballed your share of art posters in the city's subway cars. Since 2000, the MTA has been commissioning these horizontal pieces so that we commuters have something interesting to gaze at while we stealthily avoid eye contact. As a strap-hanger, I have to say that I love them.

The latest artist to interpret our daily commute is Chris Gall. This is a rare opportunity as only one or two are commissioned in a year, and the MTA takes great care in picking an artist.

You can purchase this piece and the other commissioned horizontals as Art Cards from the MTA website.

  1. Ah, the Chris Gall. I have to say, most of the time the MTA's choice for these ads don't really do it for me, but the Chris Gall caught my eye too.
