Beijing's Subway (Metro) Art

Line 7 Guangqumenwai
(广渠门外)
 

The mural at Guangqumenwai reflects how the area has transformed itself from one in which merchants used camels and donkey carts to go about their daily businesses into a modern thriving business and leisure area.

Here is the station's name in calligraphy...

The designs at the base of the escalators...

can also be found in the stonework decorative panels...

though not immediately obvious in the glass decorative panels for some reason... though if you turn your head sideways you can see the motif suddenly appear!

You donh't have to do any distortions, though, to see it in the patterns at the tops of the columns!
