Commission

Richard Wright
Elizabeth Line, London

Richard Wright’s no title (2018) has been installed on the ceiling of the Tottenham Court Road station’s eastern ticket hall as part of the Transport for London (TfL) Elizabeth Line, which opened for service on May 25, 2022. To make this work, Wright and his team painstakingly applied gold leaf to the raw concrete ceiling in an intricate geometric pattern whose reflectivity fluctuates depending on the ambient light. At seven stations on the Elizabeth Line, the Crossrail Art Programme commissioned public artworks that have been designed to interact both physically and conceptually with their sites.
