Will Miss #18 - weird station art

For some reason, there is a lot of strange artwork in train and subway stations in Tokyo. Some of it is tacky. Some is strange. Some is even nice looking. And some is simply incomprehensible. There's something appealing about it even when it's utterly unlikeable because you know some artist was commissioned for the work and they know that thousands (if not millions) of people will be looking at their work.

I will miss both the artwork and the way in which this shows an appreciation for creativity and support for artists.
