The exhibition entitled “Post Contemporary—Urban Graphic 7019” features eight early and influential graffiti artists at MoCA Shanghai. It is their first exhibition at the museum in China. Each of them has an impressive background. You can see their works in the metro stations in New York City, the American presidential election, and the most striking position on the streets of France. Fortunately, you do not need to go all over the world to see their arts; On the occasion of this Chinese New Year, visitors are welcome to visit the MoCA to feel the graffiti art all over the world.
