Graffiti in China

As the masthead to the blog testifies, I have a soft spot for Chinese graffiti. Something about the rebelliousness and angst in an otherwise monochromatic-feeling country is something I can relate to. Seeing a wall covered in detailed, colorful graffiti is like seeing a patch of forsythia blossoming on a tundra. Take a look at some of these photos, and hover over them for details (all photos by Hannah Lincoln).

    These are fantastic photographs! I always thought that the amount of graffiti in a city reflected the amount of young creativity the city was fostering. Mexico City and Seoul seemed to have Shanghai beat just a year ago, glad to see all this awesome art showing up on the streets of China.
