20 Seated Men on Corner in 1936 Mural by Arthur Cheng in Chinatown, Vancouver, Canada

Arthur Chang painted this mural called “Seated Men on Corner in 1936” on Columbia Street in Chinatown in downtown Vancouver, Canada. The inspiration was a 1936 photo from the city archives of similar Chinese men sitting in front of the Sam Kee building, the world’s narrowest building at 58 inches wide. It’s one of a series that celebrates the Chinese people in Vancouver during 1884, 1936 and 1905. Mr. Cheng was born and educated in Beijing and also does sculptures, statues, garden art and portraits.
