Spray Paint Beijing is the first documentary ever made about graffiti art in China. China’s rapid progress and modernization has paved the way for graffiti to develop as rapidly as any other art form in the country. This documentary captures the art form’s momentum in the capital of China over the course of one year. The film also reveals a handful of the artists, foreign and Chinese, who transform Beijing’s walls during the day and night.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A. A few of the artists depicted in the documentary will be in attendance.
