Graffiti art is so popular in China that people are even paying to have their walls tagged

The popularity of graffiti has gradually grown in China after first arriving during the emergence of pop culture in the ’90s. Now with the widespread use of internet, graffiti fans across China can connect and a number of official graffiti crews have emerged. 

Graffiti groups now hold graffiti exhibitions, do business with design companies, and even have their own graffiti shops. Some city administrators are even inviting graffiti fans to paint in some areas including university campuses and art villages.
