A 67-year-old man in Guizhou who’s spent most of his time in the past three decades living and painting inside a cave has inspired online.
Song Chuanzhong’s cave-space is located a kilometer away from Goupitanzhen in Yuqing county, Sina News reports. The dwelling is about 60 square meters in size, and is filled with columns, stalagmites and stalactites of all sorts. Dreamy. The man’s only furniture is bed, a tea table and a larger table where he paints.
Song named the cave “Qing Xuan”, which translates to quiet and mysterious. He’s been living a contented minimalistic life in the cave for nearly 30 years, and says the secluded and quiet life in nature has provided him with lots inspirations for his artistic creations.
Song has become well known in some parts of China for his work, with some having been resold to coastal cities and Hong Kong.
