Neighbourhood Video Series

NVS: The Walled City

* GENERICLIFE.COM * 2 Graffiti artists in Hong Kong’s Walled City emerge from one another’s paintings. The final scene suggests these paintings are not the memories of the characters, but perhaps the city itself. The concept was inspired by the former Walled City of Hong Kong, Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities, and punk DIY (Do It Yourself) attitude.

  1. Now THAT’S what I deem an insightful take on this subject. What I would suggest perhaps is speaking to other people actively involved in the scene and bring to light any different points of view and then update your site or create a new article for us to read. I hope you’ll take my ideas, I’m looking forward to it! Try to cover off on some graffiti characters as well if possible, they’re very popular at the moment.
