Their names are Dezio, Popil, Mr. Lan, SAIL, AEK, Lamian, Shier, and HKER and they’re eight of Shanghai’s top graffiti writers!

Recently, the community for youth culture in China “NeochaEDGE” and the “Chinese Knowledge and Innovation Community” (KIC) collaborated to bring these 8 protagonists and about 16 other creative groups together. The result was a four week event series in Shanghai, called “Search for Creative City”.

During that event, some interesting graffiti time-lapse videos were created. They show Shanghai’s top graffiti writers doing their best on some walls in the Chinese metropolis…
