In 2010, he took the lead in setting up a studio in the village. Miao has regretted not having received academic training in painting, so he urged local children to document changes in the countryside through art. Whenever a school invites him to teach children painting, he readily accepts.

In 2019, Miao sorted out profiles of locals with artistic flair and helped them to tap into their talents. He has also identified and called attention to cultural works of value. Under his influence, Xiuzhou district has set up 26 facilities for farmers painting.

"With good tutors to guide, students can be inspired to describe their inner thoughts, and I think more talent will be drawn to farmers painting in the future," Miao says.

He lives in the village and paints between 20 and 30 pieces a year.

"With the improvement of living standards, an artist's situation is much better now," Miao says.

He says living in the village is not only convenient but inspirational for art.
