Leningradsky railway terminal gets a 500sqm makeover
The work installed at the terminal of the Leningradsky railway station, a 500sqm ASKE makeover occurred in the form of a wooden mosaic. This large mural consisted of the now famous ASKE mosaic technique where the image was divided into opaque color blocks to form the figurative shapes and forms of the image. Each block a formed piece of wood with undeniably solid color, as convincing as the artwork itself as a whole.
The station which is the oldest in Moscow, transformed from its traditionally dull color scheme to a vibrant new facelift. As a terminal catering to hundreds of thousands of passengers each year, the space that is a functional and necessary one is now a more aesthetic one, for all to enjoy while underway.
