Who knows if the moon's
a balloon,coming out of a keen city
in the sky-filled with pretty people?
(and if you and i should

get into it,if they
should take me and take you into their balloon,
why then
we'd go up higher with all the pretty people

than houses and steeples and clouds:
go sailing
away and away sailing into a keen
city which nobody's ever visited,where

                 Spring)and everyone's
in love and flowers pick themselves

Graffiti in Beijing

Where's all the graff in this city!?

Beijing is probably the least painted city I've seen given its size and population, but if you look hard enough you can find some here and there. The reason being, I'm guessing, is strict vandalism laws and the fact that China has never experienced a major modern art movement like many other countries in the 20th century.

If you visit, be sure to check out the 798 District. It's a huge area of abandoned shipping/receiving warehouses that have been converted into chic art galleries and studios sometime after the Cultural Revolution of 1966. The art is almost purely Chinese, but I found a Spanish and Korean gallery as well.
