Apple China Posts Video Showing Creation of Mural for New Chongqing Store

Apple has posted a video on its Chinese retail website showing off an art collaboration between international photographer Navid Baraty and artist Yangyang Pan to design a mural for the company's upcoming Jiefangbei store in Chongqing. The video shows Baraty discussing his work in taking photos of Chongqing, while Pan shares her role in painting the mural that covers the location.

Last week, Apple posted a video on the website showing calligrapher Wang Dongling creating a mural for Apple's new West Lake store in Hangzhou, China which opened last week. Earlier this month, Apple retail chief Angela Ahrendts noted that Apple would be opening five new retail stores in the next five weeks to coincide with the Chinese New Year holiday. The new Jiefangbei store also marks Apple's second in Chongqing, as the first opened last July.

Apple's new Jiefangbei in Chongqing, China opens on January 31 at 10 AM local time.

The Chinese Apple website is a strange combination of English and Chinese languages.

Must save on printing and labeling costs, as well as signage for retail.

I think its more that there is no direct translation for iPhone, iPad and Mac in Chinese. We call the Apple '苹果' (direct translation of apple the fruit) but phone is '电话'. i电话 doesn't really work so we just use the English. I guess they haven't translated 'Watch' because that's the name and they aren't going to change it.


perhaps they will use 蘋果計算機手錶 for Apple watch
