Underground Art

Artist Christoph Niemann's whimsical illustrations tell the story of his sons' love of the subway.

"My sons Arthur, 5, and Gustav, 3, are obsessed with the New York City subway system. They can barely sit through an episode of "Sesame Street." But when we go for aimless subway joy rides on the weekends, they sit like little angels, devoutly calling out the names of every station for hours."
