Product story

A symbolic motif throughout Ai Wei Wei's works, flowers feature prominently in both his artwork and his activism. When his passport was withheld by the Chinese government, Ai Wei Wei placed a fresh bouquet of flowers in a bicycle basket outside his studio every morning. He also set up an Instagram project called #aiflowers; inviting people everywhere to make flowers in remembrance of the children lost in the 2008 Sichuan earthquake.
