Dafen oil painting village

Dafen oil painting village is located in Buji Subdistrict, the village is the world’s largest mass producer of oil paintings — a virtual art factory. But Dafen has more to offer than cheap paintings. Dafen was founded by a Hong Kong businessman who began production with several dozen artists in 1989, but the village has grown a lot in the last 20 years. Now 5,000 artists produce more than 5 million paintings every year, and Dafen has become famous all over the world.






Painter at work in Dafen


Dafen oil painting village has quite a nice atmosphere with paintings really everywhere. Portraits of Mao Zedong, Albert Einstein, Hu Jintao, George W. Bush and other famous figures can be seen hanging in the little galeries. Whether you are looking for a Van Gogh or a Chinese painting, you can find it in Dafen! If you cannot find what you are looking for, then just show them a photo of what you want, and the talented painters can replicate it to the smallest details.
