Water Graffiti

I heard about the art of water graffiti, but this is the first time I saw it in person while visiting China.
The artist merely arms himself with a bucket of water & a brush and begins writing away on the pavement. Sorry, I cannot read the language, but I am assuming it is various sayings or a form of poetry. If anyone knows, I would be interested to hearing what he wrote.


There is more...


He also draws.

The first character in the first picture means dragon, he was then writing fly.

He must have replaced the third character with the drawing of a phoenix. The forth and last character should be dance.

The combination of these four characters means beautiful writing.

Rainfield61: Thank you so much for the translations! I knew someone could help me out. :)

Jules: Thanks! I do love to travel. There is so much to see and learn in the world.

Mad Cats: I got there only to see the artist draw the Phoenix and the words "dragon" & "fly". He did it so effortlessly that it took him no time at all.
