A Chinese painter recently reproduced in his paintings various old scenes found in Lanzhou, the capital of northwest China’s Gansu province, reported on Nov.6, 2018.

Wang Hongqing, the painter, is in his seventies. He started to learn about painting from his grandfather while they lived together in their old house which had a yard, and his painting career has been rooted since then, said Wang.

In all his life, Wang has never stopped painting. Today, the man managed to recreate on paper not only the old Lanzhou city in his memories, but also the streets and scenic spots that faded away in the vicissitudes of history, as well as the warmth between neighbors.
