The contemporary artist Han Jin Lin lives and works in the ancient town of Dali in the southeastern province of Yunnan. He uses rubbings of manhole covers, cobblestone streets and other signs of modern everyday life collaged together to create these huge landscape works of art. You get to his home and studio through the winding narrow streets of the old town. #artistsofmodernchina #artiststudiovisit #DaliChina #cnttakeover @gtowey (at Dali, Yunnan Province, China)
