Chinese-Australian artist Badiucao has paid tribute to the 31st Tiananmen Massacre anniversary with a series of solidarity posters.

“As a China-born artist, I hope not only to commemorate the massacre, but also to travel through history and present, to [cast] the precious light on the protest students of 89, HongKongers, Taiwanese, Uighurs and Tibetans,” the artist-in-exile said. “So I choose seven moments to for the seven merits for this body of artwork.”

The Tiananmen massacre occurred on June 4, 1989 ending months of student-led demonstrations in China. It is estimated that hundreds, perhaps thousands, of people died when the People’s Liberation Army was deployed to crack down on protesters in Beijing.
