Glass Vase (Coca Cola)

By Ai WeiWei


This Ai Weiwei glass vase is a terrific opportunity to own an iconic piece by one of the world’s great artists.

The vase is a prolific motif in Ai’s work.  Ai Weiwei’s Coca Cola vase being a prime example.

Inspired by Duchamp Ai Weiwei began working on Ancient Urns and Vases.  Most famously Dropping a Han Dynasty Urn (1995).  The piece is a photographic triptych of Ai dropping a priceless 2,000-year-old urn, what Ai called a ‘cultural readymade’.

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.
