Ai Weiwei 艾未未
Artist and activist Ai Weiwei creates monumental artwork from tiny, individualized pieces, each telling the story of the artist or owner. He is best known for Sunflower Seeds, a sea of hand-painted porcelain seeds, and Remembering, an installation of 9,000 backpacks in homage to the schoolchildren killed in the 2008 Sichuan earthquake. He also helped design the Bird's Nest Stadium, though Ai came to regret his contribution. Ai was put in police custody for 81 days in 2011 after calls for a "jasmine revolution" in China, and spent the next four years deprived of his passport.
