Amazing Graffiti Turns Partly Demolished Buildings in Shanghai into Street Art

French artist Julien Malland (aka Seth Globepainter), spent the last few weeks of 2014 in Shanghai working in collaboration with artists Shi Zheng on a series of murals painted on partly demolished buildings. Inspired by locals who had been living in the buildings for decades, the artists created images that subtly address the ongoing housing and environmental issues plaguing the country. Unfortunately the buildings which had recently become a minor tourist attraction have now been destroyed by the authorities in the Jingan district of the city.
