Living in Japan as a young Chinese artist in the 1980s, Cai began to experiment with gunpowder. As a medium, it evoked both celebration within traditional Chinese culture and also the violence and protest of the Cultural Revolution that Cai grew up in. He fired rockets at his paintings and lit gunpowder from underneath his work, merging his technical skill as a painter with the lawless mark of explosion.
