The latest exhibition at Southgate's Space Gallery opens on Monday:
Ross Ashmore is an urban landscape artist who paints in an expressionistic style using oil paints in a heavy impasto manner.
Formerly a commercial artist and graphic designer Ross has embarked on an ambitious task of painting all the London Transport Underground Stations- of which there are 263. Around 100 of Ross Ashmores paintings are on show at Southgate until 5 April
The Image below depicts Southgate Tube which celebrates its 80th anniversary this month.

I'll certainly be interested to have a look at this, hopefully Wednesday lunchtime. I'm impressed by the amount of work involved - I'll be interested to see what size these paintings are, and I'd also be interested to know if he's painted them on-site, or in the studio.
OK - having got to the show, I'd recommend a look - the paintings are fairly large, approx 2.5 - 3 ft wide, and there are over 100 of them on display. They are painted very thickly (there's probably more paint on any one of these, than all the paint I've ever used!)
They are fun, and very vigorous. The sheer workload involved in producing all these is very impressive.
The Space gallery is well-named, in that it is a pretty large space, in which it would be possible to display some very big paintings.
