New Artwork “5 More Minutes” Unveiled At Brixton Tube

Brixton, our commute has just got a lot more joyful. ‘5 more minutes’ is a piece created by Joy Labinjo and commissioned by Art On The Underground. ⁠

The art celebrates Brixton’s hair salons and the contribution they make to the Black British experience and culture here. ⁠

Here is what Joy said about it: ⁠

“I wanted to make work that reflects not only my own lived experiences but other Black women in London and in the UK. In a city undergoing gentrification and, in a country, in spite of recent discourses, still sceptical of race, immigration and Black culture, the beauty of Brixton needs to be celebrated and protected.”⁠
