From nycsubway.org

Four mosaic panels on each platform near the fare control.

Jose Ortega captures the energy of the neighborhood with scenes of city life which meld seamlessly with abstract imagery. Circular forms of the sun, earth, and the human face are found throughout the murals. Pre-Columbian and African influences infuse the imagery with a timelessness. Source: cuny.edu

Ortega received a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Ortega's work has been used for magazine illustrations, Bloomingdale's shopping bags, and numerous textile designs. His work Una Raza, Un Mundo, Universo was dedicated to his mother. Source: cuny.edu
