15 Jan 2014

Unlike his peers who seek work outside their hometown, prominent paper-cutting artist Chang Yangyang makes his living remaining in Luoyang City, Mengjin County, in central Henan Province. His creations have won prizes in various contests and he has now begun volunteering at local primary schools, where he gives paper-cutting lessons to encourage more youngsters to get involved in the traditional folk art.
