BEIJING – Light-drawing artist Wang Sibo, better known as Roy Wang, led a team in a successful attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most people light drawing simultaneously on June 29.

The challenge took place at Guangzhou Technician College, Guangdong province, where Wang, along with four of his team members and 355 students from the college, completed a gigantic light drawing artwork in around two hours.

The artwork shows images, including a lion’s head from Guangdong’s characteristic art form lion dancing, the emblem of the Communist Party of China, as well as hundreds of pentagrams.

Because some of the students’ light drawing didn’t appear in the final photograph, the challenge registers a total of 328 people who successfully completed the task.

“With this innovative challenge, we would like to pay tribute to the founding anniversary of the Communist Party of China, and inspire young people to learn new skills and contribute these skills to the development of our country,” Wang says.

“It is also our aspiration to promote the spirit of Chinese craftsmanship to the world, and showcase the high-quality achievements of Chinese education.”

This marks the third time that Wang successfully broke the Guinness World Record, following his records in 2018 and 2021 in completing the largest light drawing.
