China’s fur farms—which supply more than half of the finished fur garments imported for sale in the U.S.—are among the world’s most barbaric. So writer Andy Best and local Shanghai artist Kaine Lv have turned up the volume on the Chinese fight against skins. The two DIYers recently teamed up with music promoter Split Works and rallied Shanghai’s underground music scene to produce the city’s first-ever PETA Asia photo shoot.
To celebrate the milestone, Best and Lv hosted an anti-fur concert at Yu Yin Tang—Shanghai’s hottest rock venue—headed by indie sensation Candy Shop.
Best, Lv, and Candy Shop are proof that the grassroots approach to taking action is the fastest way to turn heads. We can’t wait to see what the resourceful, compassionate folks in Shanghai come up with next to battle fur.
