'Diamonds and Circles, works in situ' by Daniel Buren is a new permanent artwork for Tottenham Court Road station, commissioned by Art on the Underground.

The renowned French artist was selected in 2008 to create a new installation for the upgraded Tube station at Tottenham Court Road. The artwork will become a major feature of both the two new entrances from Oxford Street and Charing Cross Road and inside the new ticket hall.

Buren’s designs play with simple concepts; shapes, colours and his trademark stripes. His new installation creates a colourful series of large scale diamond and circle shapes fixed to the station’s internal glass walls. A cabinet containing the ‘parents’ of the forms in three dimensions will be installed in a vitrine inside the ticket hall.

The artwork sits firmly within Buren’s illustrious practice and yet presents the public with something wholly new. This will be his first permanent public commission in the UK offering millions of Tube users and wider public a unique chance to enjoy a world-class piece of contemporary art.
