NOTES: An homage to the traditional Chinese art of ‘papercutting’, a handcraft going back over 2,000 years. An oft-used process in China in story-telling during festivities, for prayers and as everyday decorations.

A ‘classic Ai WeiWei’ piece, with a number of subtle nods to his wider practice (Coca-Cola vases, the colour red, the homage to Chinese heritage being perhaps the most pertinent).

The Artist

Ai Weiwei

Ai Weiwei is a world-famous contemporary artist from China. He works in a variety of media and has been a vocal critic of human rights issues in China. He spent time during his childhood forced into re-education camps because his father, Ai Quing, also an artist, had been accused of being a “Rightist” by the government of China. Ai Weiwei later attended the Film Academy in Beijing, where he studied animation. After moving to New York, he supported himself by drawing portraits of people on the street, and was influenced by cultural figures like Andy Warhol and Allen Ginsberg. He attended further study at the Art School League of New York and the Parsons School of Design.
