Ai Weiwei is undoubtedly one of the most significant Chinese artists of our time. He works as an architect, an independent curator, a conceptual artist and is the founder of the 'China Art Warehouse' gallery. His work, in part politically motivated, is strongly influenced by Dadaism and the New York conceptual art movement. Ai Weiwei combines Eastern placidity with an artistic will to provoke. This monograph documents the eclecticism of his extravagant and innovative body of works.
