Amy Winehouse Portrait

With London commuters facing an 8% rise in fares, they probably won't feel too happy about Transport for London's wasting money on its projects for Art on the Underground, even if this painting by Johan Andersson of Amy Winehouse is rather good. The portrait will be exhibited at Camden Town Underground Station, near where Amy used to live. Since her death, Amy's Back to Black album has become the biggest-selling album in the UK in the 21st Century with sales of 3.26 million, according to the Official Charts Company (CLICK). What a wasted talent! Very sad.

Yes, I am not too cool with the fare rise, but this is a good portrait all the same.

Hi, Guillaume

This portrait is the best piece of art I've seen from TfL's Art on the Underground. Most of it has been rubbish. I would like to know how much it is all costing.
