The paper “Tagging and Calligraphic Practice in Beijing’s Graffiti” by the WRITE Principal Investigator Adriana Iezzi was selected for the Tag Conference 2020. In this paper, she analyzes how the art of Chinese ancient calligraphy influences contemporary graffiti tagging in Beijing, focusing on the works of some of the most important Beijing crews/writers.
