Where to buy paintings in Guangzhou?

In Tianjin and Beijing there are many art shops where its possible to buy Chinese paintings on scrolls which i am a big admirer of.

I didn't see any such shops when I was in Guangzhou last time but presumably wasn't in the right area.

Can anyone advise an area where there are some art shops in GZ?

Try Wende Lu although I have not visited Wende yet, I've been reading about it. Just google it.

Yes, try Wen De Lu, very close to Bei Jing Lu. It's a street of shops selling paintings, calligraphy (less so though), frames etc. However, they're mostly for home deco purposes.

Also on Wen De Lu, up to the end in the north joining Zhong Shan San Lu, there's a big (probably) state-owned shop hosting exhibitions of and selling top quality Chinese painting and calligraphy. The name is troughly translated like Guangzhou Antique Store.

Hope this helps.
