THE ‘RAINBOW GRANDPA’ SAVING A VILLAGE WITH ART
Haung Yung-fu has kept his home and village untouched by surrounding developers thanks to his intricate and colourful wall paintings. Nicknamed the ‘Rainbow Grandpa’, the 93-year-old is still creating artwork to this day. Almost ten years ago, Huang received a letter stating that his home, a settlement in the Nantun district of Taichung City, was to be demolished. He was offered compensation money or could move to a new area. Deciding he didn’t want to lose his village, Haung got to work painting and decorating the mostly abandoned homes.
