the man behind the giant footprints

Just found out the giant footprint's firework for Beijing Olympics
opening is actually done by the world-renowned artist Cai Guo-Qiang.

No wonder!

I was checking back his works, and it is so freaking amazing~
Painting with gun-powder, exploding car installation, the black rainbow, conceptual fireworks and performances. Every single one of them is
a masterpiece.

Although there are a lot of negative critiques about the opening,
but I'm still looking forward for the closing ceremony.
