“Gongle” paints a suffocating reality as Badiucao’s biting cartoons find a physical form at his debut exhibition. It is through this hyperbole and piercing satire where purposeful misrepresentation can find new forms of expression.

Badiucao uses his art to challenge censorship and dictatorship in China. He believes that, in the absence of free speech and democracy, history is constantly being tampered with. By confronting the official record, he uses art and the internet to deconstruct the arrogance and authority of dictatorship. Badiucao aims to create a building block to spark individual awakening.
