The Camden underground station tribute to Amy Winehouse was created by Swedish artist Johan Andersson and has become an iconic image of the singer after it was made public two weeks after Amy death in July 2011.
Amy Winehouse lived a short walk from the station and was well-known in the Camden area. The Camden underground station tribute to Amy will be shown for two weeks on platform one of Camden tube station.

Remembering Amy Winehouse One Year After Her Death: Tribute By Johan Andresson Goes On Display At Camden Underground Station
It doesn’t feel like a whole year since the world heard the sad news of Amy Winehouse’s death, but this month it will be.
In order to pay tribute to the singer, an area of London’s tube network has been decorated with the special billboard by Johan Andersson.
The Swedish aritst’s portrait, which depicts a pensive and slightly vulnerable-looking Winehouse dashed with small flecks of colour, became iconic when it was first shown two weeks after she died of alcohol poisoning aged just 27.
The billboard will remain on display until 12 July at Camden Tube station – the area of London most synonymous with Winehouse who regularly performed in the region’s many pubs and venues.
Amy’s parents Mitch and Janis Winehouse will be commemorating her death with a traditional Jewish ceremony that’ll include prayers and lighting of candles.
