Artist's Description

I was greatly inspired by a recent trip to China, some new ink, and the enduring image of the “Tank Man” of Tiananmen who inspires me as one of the greatest and courageous protesters of the 20th century.

A day after Chinese military killed at least hundreds or perhaps thousands of demonstrators in Beijing in 1989, a wiry man in a white shirt stepped in front of a line of moving tanks near Tiananmen Square. No one know what became of him after the famous images were filmed/photographed.

Ink/acrylic on Chinese newspaper
July 2013
