Beijing's Subway (Metro) Art

Line 15 – Olympic Green

‘Chinese Olympic Dream’ by Wu Dingyu and Cui Donghui is a mosaic and steel mural measuring 3.9m by 50m.

The artists adopted abstract silhouettes to create an impression of action symbols.

The background of red and yellow – the national colours of China – is apparently meant to instil a strong sense of national pride and togetherness.

Whether or not you like the silhouettes, these overhead lights remind passengers of the 2008 Olympic mascots and are guaranteed to bring a smile to everyone’s faces.

More overhead lighting represents abstracts of the Olympic athletes.

And these abstracts are used in yet more lighting...

Overall, this really is a most attractive station!
