They are young, energetic and creative, and even a bit wild. Sharing the same passion, the group of Beijing-based graffiti artists created a team known as ABS, which stands for active, brilliant and significant.

The four young men - Ye Shu, 29, Chen Chuang, 27, Xu Yan, 25, and Wang Weixuan, 26 - opened a shop selling graffiti-related products in the capital last year, which was the first of its kind in China.

"We love the art of graffiti and formed our team in 2008. Our initial goal was simple: to show this creative art form to people and have fun," said Ye, who has been a graffiti artist for nine years.

Ye said that their objectives were upgraded after they developed a deeper understanding of their art.
