[NetEase] The afternoon of Novmber 14, in Shenzhen Huaqiang North downtown area, a man wearing a gown looked exactly like Chiang Kai-shek appeared at Huaqiang Norton Commercial Street. He sat on the floor in front of him a cap and some words about begging for peace, begging for creativity, begging for number of clicks, begging for ideas…” attracted numerous curious onlookers to take pictures of him.

I interviewed him right there and was informed that the man was an artist named XXX from Shenzhen (Bao’an) International Creative Cultural Festival (12/2 – 12/22) F518 Idea Land. He said that he hoped to find more outstanding creative talents and idea of wisdoms for the F518 festival in Shenzhen during December. He stated that his action was to perform taking advantage of his similar looks of Chiang Kai-shek, borrowing the culture memory of Chiang in the society and his special characters to arouse people, calling people to cherish peace, to pursue truth and consciousness. The witty sense of humor not only could attract the public’s curiosity, but also let the audiences to reflect a number of social issues and historical issues.

In “Shanzhai Chiang Kai-shek’s” words, “As a man, begging for May-Ling” showed respect to Chiang Kai-shek, this historical great man as a real man, with understanding smiles people felt this “beggar’s” humor.

What he wrote on the floor:

As a Chinese, begging for peace
As a planner, begging for ideas
As a website editor, begging for hits
As a man, begging for May-Ling
