Chengdu 2016 Graffiti Battle Photos

A few photos from a graffiti battle here in Chengdu, called Toyato. Hosted by Gas, Chengdu’s (and Western China’s) most prominent graffiti artist.

The graffiti scene in China has changed a lot in the time that I’ve been here. Mandarin-language graffiti is more common now and features of traditional Chinese culture (pagodas, calligraphy brushes, pandas, kung fu) are frequently featured, instead of just the international symbols, like boomboxes and train cars.
