Another Apple Store is about to open in China (Video)

Another Apple Store is about to open in China (Video)
About a week ago, we showed you a video about a new Apple Store opening in China. Apple plans on launching five stores in the country before the start of the Chinese New Year on February 19th, and the Apple Store West Lake location has just been opened. The video we showed you focused on Wang Dongling, an artist who specializes in calligraphy. Wang was using his special talents to decorate the store just before a huge throng appeared to witness the grand opening.

The next Apple Store that will open in China is the Apple Store, Jiefangbei. Apple got two artists to work together, helping it decorate the new retail location. Photographer Navid Baraty and painter Yangyang Pan joined forces despite both being from different cultures, and having expertise in different mediums. Pan painted over Baraty's photographs to create a different style of art.

Jiefangbei is located in the downtown area of Chongqing, where the Yangtze and Jialing Rivers come together. Click on the video below to see a talented photographer and a talented painter come together to celebrate another new Apple Store in China. The tech titan is looking to open 25 retail locations in the country before the end of next year.

Yeah, repeating the same comment over and over again...What do you know about art? All you know is your "monies" get to cashier then iPhone get to you then you go back home and lick it for the whole day. Pathetic.

Close your dirty mouth. Korea was or will never be part of China. Go learn some history before barking here, moron. And what's your problem to care so much about Korea? Are you jobless?

Korea was slave of China before the Qing dynasty. korea always sacrificed for China in turn of Koreans safety during mongol invasion. SO KOREA WAS PART OF CHINA. JUST BOW ON CHINA!

What a funny baseless statement from a misinformed dude. Qing dynasty didn't rule over joseon dynasty, it along with Ming dynasty were just tributary states, not slave. yes, we had connection with China in term of network of trade and foreign relations between China and China's "tributaries" (Joeson dynasty) whose ideals in one form or another, for millennia. Joseon was the only and last dynasty of Korean history and the longest-ruling Confucian dynasty which had some relationship with foreigners China and japan. Again, DO NOT OVER-GENERALIZE KOREA with China. Korea is Korea, China is China, another neighbor country of Korea.

So, you bow to Japan, then? The Treaty of Shimonoseki, the Marco Polo Bridge Incident, and Manchukuo are more current than China's dominance of Korea.

you mean the U.S ? lol samsung saw a big drop in the sales there , not to mention marketshare in their own home country got cut in half. Samsung needs to innovate and reduce prices to compete with chinese brands or else they can hardly claim anything.

Every companies have its up and down. Samsung slidely loss market share once is a great archive that other couldn't do. Samsung has always been innovative for a long time. What they need to do is make a better change in design that would trash Apple servery.

Hmm you better open a store here in Indonesia, your products is kinda overpriced here. Second it's always release later than any country, i think about 4 month late and people here keep waiting for iPhone 6 and 6 plus (i don't get it... But Apple product is very famous here). I'd rather wait for LG G4 or htc M9 than wait for iPhone 6 to release...

Fashionistas extravaganza outlet for artists!!! Let it be strong while it can, when glimmer fades an substance is realized absent, the ire an resent will be stronger. Snake oil salesmen might live like a king for a while, but they all die the same, with shame an ridicule.
