Dafen Oil Painting Village, once an ordinary Hakka village, began its transformation into a mecca of oil painting in Shenzhen since 1989 when Hong Kong art dealer Huang Jiang introduced the oil painting industry here. Today, numerous oil painting studios dot the landscape, where artists create on-site, allowing visitors to experience the allure of oil painting up close.

Venturing into this art-infused village, you not only witness the process of oil painting creation but also have the opportunity to purchase or commission various oil painting artworks. Dafen Village is a perfect fusion of art and commerce, attracting countless art enthusiasts each year to explore its offerings.
