Art is either Plagiarism or Revolution...

said Gauguin.


Ai Wei Wei inspires a fire inside me. He lives free of fear, full of his truth. In China they call him (loose translation) "Ai God."  

He recently created 100 million porcelain sunflower seeds for a piece at the Tate. "It's a work about mass production and repeatedly accumulating the small effort of individuals to become a massive, useless piece of work," he says. "China is blindly producing for the demands of the market . . . My work very much relates to this blind production of things. I'm part of it, which is a bit of a nonsense." 


A new doc on his life I can't wait to see:
