Cai Guo-Qiang

Cai Guo-Qiang is a Chinese modern artist who excels at making things explode. Guo-Qiang creates photography, installation pieces and drawings made with gunpowder. He currently has an exhibit, Sky Ladder, which is on display until July 30 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. Guo-Qiang is an expert at using pyrotechnics to make his work and his knack for making things detonate fits in perfectly with the 4th of July.
