Platforms Piece, Brixton station, 2011

Platforms Piece consists of three bronze sculptures of commuters at Brixton railway station, completed by the British artist Kevin Atherton in 1986.

In November 2016, Platforms Piece was given listed status by Historic England, and two of the figures are believed to be the first public sculptural representations of black British people in the UK.[1]
