96-Year-Old Man Saves Village From Demolition By Painting It.

It turns out that the government had plans to demolish all the homes that were still in the village.

But when the government realized the value that his artwork had brought to the area, they changed their minds and opted not to tear down the village, which was undoubtedly a huge relief for Huang and the remaining villagers.

Painting the village is lovely, but it requires a lot of maintenance to keep the artwork intact.

The elements have a way of ruining the outdoor painting, so Huang spends a lot of his time and energy keeping the painted village in tip-top shape. But he’s not letting age slow him down. Huang intends to continue painting even when he turns 100.

The last thing people think of when they visit this little town is a village because it’s like a dream world.

There are all sorts of ethereal creatures, symbols and writing on the walls and Huang wakes up about 3 am to paint and maintain every last one of them. The artwork’s so colorful that tourists dubbed Huang “Rainbow Grandpa.”

The ironic thing about Huang’s incredible talent is that he never did anything like this professionally.

His dad had taught him the basics on how to draw when he was 3 but that’s about it. But somehow, he was able to tap into his soul and release this amazing hidden talent to turn a dull gray village into something beautiful.

Since Huang became Rainbow Grandpa, it’s only fair the village would be known as Rainbow Village.

He turned walls, pathways, and rooflines into massive canvases full of colorful figurines. It was such an ingenious, positive and unique art project. If only there were other people who could react artistically like Huang has.
