Well-known filmmaker Gus Van Sant, who has made many of his sometimes controversial films in Portland and is a local resident, has been arrested on charges of driving while under the influence of intoxicants, according to Portland police.
The arrest took place in Portland around 4 a.m. Thursday, according to Portland police spokesman Sergeant Brian Schmautz.
Many of his films were made in Portland and he is currently making "Paranoid Park" in and around the city.
Cai Guo Qiang is an interesting International art star, who made built his career by utilizing gunpowder as his preferred medium. As you can see he has branched out and is making equally compelling work. I still like his work that involves big explosions or the traces of such explosions. Check out his other works in the link in his name.
