    To add on to what kthurber has already stated (which is great by the way, I love the picture!), Ai Weiwei is known for his wit, gentleness, and extreme compassion towards the suffering of others. He is renowned for combining art with social projects, and has dedicated volunteers who have risked their life for his causes (ex. The Sichuan Earthquake Names Project). He has his own studio called FAKE designs.

    He is an inspiration to many, but a “scholar clown” to some also. He has been accused of stealing other artists’ ideas, and has been criticized for his views against elitism and authority.
