An edgy enclave of subculture in Shanghai, aka Paris of the East.
A contemporary art district in Shanghai at 50 Moganshan Road, is where the M50 Creative Park derived its name. Home to a thriving community of about a hundred artists whose studios are open to the public, it attracts both locals and tourists and is likened to New York's SoHo. Situated in an old industrial area along the Suzhou Creek, this commune of art galleries and studios were converted from former factories and warehouses. The industrial chic adds to the grunge atmosphere, and cutting-edge work can be found in many galleries representing some of the city’s best artists. Visit ShanghART - one of the most established galleries or Island6 for its provocative art. Photography enthusiasts should pop into DN Club which offers vintage SLRs classes. As you stroll down the streets, do not miss the flamboyant graffiti splashed on the gritty walls of Moganshan Road.
