Cai Guo-Qiang: Artistic Explosions
<p>Cai Guo-Qiang is one of the most inimitable personalities to appear in contemporary international art, an artist who by traditional standards remains impossible to categorize. He produces "gunpowder paintings" on Japanese paper, employing Chinese ink-wash techniques, yet adding a novel touch of his own that transforms smoke and gunpowder into creative media in an ingenious fusion of technology and art. This season, we will be offering a phenomenal creation by the artist from his<em> Search for Extraterrestrials</em> series. The work is composed of eight separate sheets of paper which join to form a long panorama exceeding thirty metres in length. </p> <p>This video has been shared courtesy of Cai Studio Archive, New York.</p>
