Street snapshot of a tag by one of Beijing’s most prolific graffiti artists, ZATO, on a sign near the White Stupa Temple, a Buddhist landmark near the city center usually referred to by its Chinese name, Baitasi. The neighborhood around Baitasi is mostly narrow, residential alleys — hutong — which have recently become a new site site for the annual urban planning showcase Beijing Design Week. ZATO has tags all over town, with a particular tendency towards areas of intense cultural activity and flux. Read more about ZATO here.
