Inspired by the phone conversation between the presidents of the United States and Russia in the famous 1964 black comedy film “Dr. Strangelove”, the painting indicates that at the other end of the phone, is now the Chinese president. The Chinese characters reading from the left to right is: “Hello? Beijing?”. Ironically, the part… that’s on the right side of the character “喂” (Hello) is “畏”, which also means “fear”. The anxiety and fear about China’s rising as the US’s major competitor and partner isn’t uncommon nowadays, despite of the calls for more dialogues and communications between the two nations.
