Shinguang Village in the Guanmiao District of Tainan City was once an ordinary old village. Eye-catching wall paintings by illustrators now line the 400m length of Beiliao Old Street and have breathed new life into an old farming community. The colorful paintings tend towards realism and a country style. They include detailed landscapes, black & white inkwash paintings, realist characters, and animal illustrations. There are also paintings depicting temple parades and markets as well as everyday scenes that complement the local ambiance. The community is enlivened by those colorful paintings.
