Interesting artist mentioned in class yesterday that I had never heard of.

Seemingly inappropriately grinning faces highlight conflict between the setting and affect. Creepy and defiant at the same time. Presumably born out of living under a more oppressive regime. His own website was blocked by China too when I tried to go to it.
