Following Ai Weiwei
Did you know that the artist Ai Weiwei is fairly active on instagram?
Get a peek into the life of the artists life through lots of portrait pictures of different people he meet mixed with some related to his works and some seem almost private where he snaps pictures of holidays, dinners and everyday situations.
This from an artist that has to go to web cafés to secretly skype with people outside of China since he’s not allowed to leave the country since the Chinese government is still investigating him on suspicion of all kinds of charges ranging from bigamy to illicit exchange of foreign currency.
Sometimes I also see hints of sarcasm in the things he posts, like this picture that seems like a take on his old picture series where he drops a Han dynasty urn.
