'Rainbow Village', in the suburbs of Taichung, Taiwan, has undergone a massive transformation thanks to former soldier, Huang Yong Fu. Despite being 95-years-old, Huang managed to single-handedly stave off the bulldozers by adorning the walls of his village with thousands of vibrant pictures. Huang, who is originally from Hong Kong and fought in the Second Sino-Japanese war as a member of the Chinese Nationalist Party, came to Taiwan with his regimen in 1949.
