Eduardo Paolozzi’s mosaics at the Tottenham Court Road Underground are one of London’s most iconic public works of art. Unfortunately, large sections were lost during the recent station restyling.

Thanks to the intervention of mosaicist Gary Drostle and his team, the sections of the destroyed panels were recreated using the colorful Orsoni Venetian Smalti to emphasize the brightest colors as red, green, yellow and blue.
