Product story

Limited edition turquoise dust jacket which has been hand painted by Ai Weiwei Hon RA. This boldness of brushstroke can be seen throughout his work and emulates the same aesthetic seen is his Coloured Vases. These were created by dipping antique Chinese pots into brightly coloured paint which was then allowed to drip down each vessel, just like the paint on the dust jacket has run down the page.

Ai Weiwei is an artist and activist. Born in 1957, he currently resides and works in Beijing, China. From architecture to installations, social media to documentaries, Ai uses a wide range of mediums as expressions to set up new possibilities and conditions for his audience to examine society and its values.

Ai Weiwei was elected an Honorary Royal Academician in 2011.
