Underbelly, Exposed.

Published on: October 31st, 2010 | Last updated: December 15, 2015 Written by:

There’s going to be a lot of buzz in the morning over this mysterious link that is just now starting to appear on the radar – http://www.theunderbellyproject.com/. There’s already photos/video/slideshow/article in The Sunday Times of London (paywall). I imagine the local media will be all up on this during the next week.

Here’s are the facts: Somewhere under NYC there’s an abandoned subway station, and in said station, over 100 artists created works of art in this space. The works of art run the range from installations to paintings, aerosol to utterly insane. The names behind these works run from the very well known to the obscure. Where else in the world will you find a Sane piece feet from a Swoon? Some other well known names: Roa, Mark Jenkins (who’s use of this space is described by many as utterly terrifying), TrustoCorp, Posterchild, Jeff Soto, Gaia, Jice, F5, Smells, Cash4… the list is a ‘who’s who’ of the art world.

There’s no words that can really do this space justice, so instead here’s a batch of photos:


Vandalog really catches the emotion that must go through one’s mind if you were to accidentally stumble across this place.

    I’m not an urban explorer. Before The Underbelly Project, the closest I’d ever gotten to urban exploring was a visit to London’s Battersea Power Station that ended with my friends and I being nabbed by security. So maybe this will be a big deal in the urban exploring community or maybe it will be seen as street art co-opting the culture a bit too much, but it was an awe-inspiring thing for me to see when I went down.
