Cai Guo-Qiang is a Chinese-American artist who's known for his explosive fire work events, powder drawings and a variety of sculptural creations. His gunpowder drawings strongly reflect Mao Zedong's tenet "destroy nothing, create nothing." said Cai. He is probably one of the first artist who's work was gazed upon by one billion people simultaneously. He created the extravagant worldwide televised opening fire works for the Beijing Olympics in 2008.
