Badiucao is one of the most popular and prolific political artist from China, and he confronts
a variety of social and political issues head on in his work. He uses his art to challenge the
censorship and dictatorship in China via his Twitter account @badiucao.
He believes history is constantly being unified and tampered with, and even forgotten, when
free speech and democracy are absent. His art is a record of his personal perspective on
social issues to confront the official record. He believes art and the internet has the power to
deconstruct the arrogance and authority of dictatorship as a building block of individual
awakening and free independence.
