Wow, I didn't know there was a grafitti scene in China; on the other hand, (a) why shouldn't it  (b) haven't been there for years.
This bohemian mansion is terrific, has a touch of Hundertwasser.  This project was very likely officially authorized (for the sake of tourism), right?

There was a five year plan to move all Chongqing universities outside the mountain barrier near Shapingba.  This was to accelerate economic development in the communities of the region that had not changed significantly since the period of the peoples communes.  At the same time, moving the young people away from city center reduced their exposure to the influences of gambling and prostitution.  Creating the graffiti street was a way of having huangjiaping remain an important artists location and destination after the removal of the art institute... Not sure if it worked but I hope so.

Amazing info, thanks! Well, I'm not the one to judge – but I've never heard taking away educational infrastructure would increase a region's employment and wealth ...  Now it gives me a bitter aftertaste, not to keep the whole art institute, along with the graffiti street. Surely now it's at least a compromise, so yes, knock on wood!  Anyway I wonder, how modern graffiti culture in (mainland) China looks like. Since probably I soon won't go there myself, hopefully there will be documentaries some day.

Amazing photo!!!!

Also, pretty sure that Moneistruth is a troll. No one can claim that buying an iPhone makes someone moral and be serious.
