Unusual Portaits Of Miners

Posted on September 2, 2011 by team


New York artist Cai Guo-Qiang, who works with gunpowder, was inspired by the work of Ukrainian miners and created his personal exhibition called "1040 m under the ground."

And then Cai strewed gunpowder on these paintings and fired them.
