Artist Ai Weiwei is one of my favorite contemporary artists I’ve ever been able to study. His calm fearlessness is incredibly inspiring. He carries himself in accordance with a deep-set mission that goes beyond him, his work, and immdediate surroundings. Weiwei’s ability to conceptualize complex societal ideas and make them cross-culturally accessible to the public eye and understanding is truly a gift.
I’m SO grateful to have been able to see Weiwei’s work in person!
