AUTHOR CAO HUI – FROM FACEBOOK PAGE VEGAN ART HERE
Cao Hui is a remarkable sculptor in the Chinese contemporary art scene. His techniques and themes are unique and his works speak very strongly to the East and the West
China is a developing country that is lacking in human rights, therefore there is wide-spread animal cruelty. Cao Hui’s works are beautifully violent and show the truth behind what you are eating or wearing.
The artist is a vegan which is an anomaly in a country that is known to eat “anything with its back to the sun.”
..To the producer, competition is an irritant and a source of insecurity. Therefore, his drive is toward monopoly. Since every producer wants to remove the obstacles to the most profitable sale of the largest practical volume of his goods, his instinctive drive is to limit competition.

Second, it submits that audience to the most intensive indoctrination. Third, it operates on the entire family.
Obviously, the limited number of sponsors and the high cost of television combine to produce a growing threat to the 25,000 or so nationally advertised brands and the 200,000 or more private brands, store brands, regional brands, which cannot or do not aspire to television.

As an Eastern European I feel very upset about the situation our world is currently in. There are loads of insults regarding both countries but with all honesty I think both countries are very important for our world. I am not saying they are perfect however they are very important in shaping of our future. To me US and Russia are like YING AND YANG and they even both stand next to each other if you look at the map. They both gave us great artists, innovation and both have its own problems as every other country does. Both are hated and admired. In my life I had many American friends as I had Russian ones. And I have noticed that these people are probably the most hard working and smartest people I have ever met. Well, of course people from other countries are also hard workers and have loads of genius people but I am currently writing about US and Russia so please excuse me :) . Okay so guys lets think positive now and stay assured that both countries will influence one another in the most positive way. There is no reason for hate. We have to have the most positive thoughts now because the power of the thought is immense and is influencing our future.
