Cai Guo-Qiang is a Chinese artist who’s succesfully positioned himself in the art elite over the last few years. The majority of his work is based around gun powder and explosions, with which he creates large scale drawings and ephemeral works. In addition, its interesting to note that gunpowder means fire medicine in Chinese. So sit back and enjoy this post which includes 7 drawings, 3 ephemeral works, and a video at the end…
