Artwork Brightens up Metro Stations
Paintings of daisies and butterflies lined the walls at the interchange stations of lines 3 and 4, better known as the Children’s Palace Station, which shows the colorful world accoeding to the eyes of a child.
The art work was designed by a girl who hails from Shenzhen and is now working at Curious Pictures in New York. Luo Zhi, the designer, graduated from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and University of New York was happy that her work was chosen to grace the walls of the station.
Luo chose to decorate the walls with simple bright colors to show the charismatic side of Shenzhen and it was better than using abstract ideas. The design was also chosen since more children will take the Metro to participate in activities at the Children’s Palace. Luo said that the Children’s Palace is a special place for her when she was a child, and she spent a lot of time there and attended drawing classes.
Designs were kept simple, lively and bright, the ticket halls in Line three had flowers designed on the walls, Laojie Station used a yellow, blue and white porcelain design. Cuizhu Station used a green bamboo design, while red litchi a Shenzhen specialty was used when designing Hongling Station.
