Wu Gaozhong Biography
  He graduated from Nanjing Art Institute, Arts and Crafts department in 1990. In recent years his work has been widely exhibited in China and internationally. In 2001 Wu Gaozhong caused a sensation in Shanghai when he emerged from the belly of a cow stuffed with rose petals, into which he had earlier been packed. More recently he has produced some spectacular sculptural work using thousands of pig hairs painstakingly inserted into wood.
