One resident, 48-year-old car dealership owner Mr Hu, told the Chinese daily that he discovered the vandalism on Sunday and was shocked to see that almost the entire carpark had been defaced with graffiti depicting patterns and words such as “painful,” “sad,” “remorse,” “love me, don’t go.” “This is “Art” and such.
