"Right Here" at sand painter's fin­ger­tips

Changjiang Weekly - - CULTURE - By Huang Li­juan

"Right Here," a song sung by Han Lei withth e lyrics men­tion­ing many Wuhan land­marks has be­come a re­cent hit in lo­cal so­cial net­work­ing plat­forms. Among many adapted edi­tions, a sand­paint­ing ver­sion of "Right Here" by Zhou Lian is re­mark­ably eye-catch­ing.

Ac­com­pa­nied withth e pow­er­ful voice of Han Lei, land­marks in the city are an­i­mated in the sand­paint­ings. Marathon­ers run­ning down from the Yel­low Crane Tower, the Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge, Wuhan Rail­way Sta­tion, 1911 Rev­o­lu­tion Square, Hubu Al­ley, the former Jiang­han Cus­toms Build­ing, East Lake, and Op­tics Val­ley Fu­ture City are all cap­tured in this sand­paint­ing show.

Wuhan-re­lated themes have taken up most of Zhou's work in re­cent years. Her works are usu­ally based on the pho­to­graphs of Wuhan she has shot or col­lected. She said that the lyrics of "Right Here" in­spired this ver­sion of "Right Here." Her next am­bi­tion will be an­other sand-paint­ing in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the song, but fol­low­ing the genre of tra­di­tional Chi­nese paint­ings.
