Panda is a symbol of China. Chinese artist Zhao Bandi takes this unqiue symbol as his own, and use it to show the world a very distinctive China through his incredible creativity in the way of art. Zhao Bandi's works include Photographs, Videos and Performance.
The works of Zhao Bandi, known by its openness and the power of interference to Chinese society, have made him one of the most famous and influential artists in China.
His panda fashion show is one of the very typical and fantastic works.
Before him, no any designer or artist has ever put the whole chinese society including each stratum and all kinds of typical people on the catwalk.
Audience might feel shocked and uncomfortable when they find themselves from these characters.
The common people as well as prostitute, concubine, corrupt official, etc, are present in the same fabulous fashion show, which entertains us while also urges us to take a serious think about our life and society today.
Panda fashion show is a great and beautiful chinese contemporary art work.
