This colourful village decorated with paints shines like a rainbow. However, the village was once just as grey and boring as any other old military village. However, Mr. Huang, a local habitant changed everything all by himself. Mr. Huang, also known as "Grandpa Rainbow,  was a Hong Kongnese immigrating to Taiwan with the R.O.C. government over six decades ago. Due to boredom and sudden inspiration, Mr.Huang, who had zero training in arts, picked up paints and brushes and started drawing on the walls. The themes of these colourful illustrations are all scenes from Mr. Huang's memory, ranging from animals, Chinese mythological characters to the most popular Taiwanese idols nowadays. The Rainbow Military Village once faced the fate of demolition, but luckily after young people fought for it, the mayor promised to keep the village at it is, preserving Mr.Huang's work of the heart-and-soul.
The beautiful military village is located near Ling Tung Technology University. Why not take some time to visit these paintings under the sunshine and feel the ever-young energy and warmth of Grandpa Rainbow?
