Ai Weiwei

An email this morning from WAN introduced me to the Chinese artist Ai WeiWei and his wonderfully simple, yet evocative sculptures…. I especially like this one of bikes called Forever……..

I’m amazed at the strength and commitment of some people. Ai appears to be hounded by the Chinese authorities, and gets beaten up for his beliefs. Ai was also instrumental in the design of the Beijing Birds Nest Stadium… beauty from adversity.
