“I live in Shijia Hutong. I usually use my phone to take photos of construction sites in the hutong whenever I pass by those sites on my way to work or shopping. I have drawn more than 20 watercolor paintings based on those photos since early September,” Zhang Yingxing, a resident of Shijia Hutong of Dongcheng District of Beijing, said.

After the project of removing overhead wires into ground was launched in Shijia Hutong and Neiwubu Street, Zhang began to draw sketches and draw watercolor paintings to record changes in hutongs.

In recent years, the Shijia Hutong has undergone several people-benefit projects like the ones of replacing coal with electricity, renovating courtyards and removing overhead wires, which are highly praised by residents.

Zhang expressed that as a resident and lover of fine arts in Shijia Hutong, he felt obligated to draw and record the wonderful moments in the hutong and convinced that the life in the hutong will be better and better in the future.
