HONG KONG --( ASIA TODAY )-- A dazzling geometric mural titled “Morning Dynamics” was unveiled at MTR Quarry Bay Station today (22 March 2018), bringing a brand new travelling experience filled with vibrant colours to MTR customers. Created by British street artist Mr Remi Rough, the new artwork depicts the flow of commuters in the MTR network, giving a unique identity to the subway near Exit A of the station. The geometric form at the end guides passengers towards the station exit.

“Remi Rough has created a site-specific artwork for one of the long subways at Quarry Bay Station. His unique geometric style is combined with a bold use of colour to provide a vibrant design that reflects the dynamism of the MTR,” said Mr Andrew Mead, Chief Architect (ARBUK) of MTR Corporation.

Jointly commissioned by MTR Corporation and Swire Properties Ltd., “Morning Dynamics” is the latest station artwork under the “Art in MTR” programme. MTR Corporation invites local and international artists to incorporate their art pieces into the actual design of the station architecture, providing an environment full of inspiration for commuters using the MTR network.

“Under the ‘Art in MTR’ programme, we continuously commission high quality art pieces in our stations, and by doing so are able to foster an innovative culture and nurture creative and artistic talents in the community,” said Mr Mead.
