Street art is rare in Shanghai. The Chinese are probably too strict and the police is watching closely. Only one long wall bears graffiti, and it’s in this place that was developed an art centre… well, then Chinese way… so the result resembles more like an Art Gallery Mall than a creative place for art. It’s called M50, because it’s located at 50 Moganshan Road.
The wall was threatened to be taken down two years ago because of a construction project, but it’s still there, for the moment. Behind this wall lays a wasteland, and beyond that, as you can see on the pictures, loom very high apartment blocks. From the density of those housings you can tell the property prices are very high, and days are certainly numbered for this wall.
