艾未未 Mr Wormwood

Chinese and joyfully unbowed by grief,
has written 1,000 Years of Joys and Sorrows.

His family name 艾 (ài) can be translated as wormwood,
whose silvery leaves are a cleaner of the liver.

His first name 未未  (wèi-wèi)
means different things when pronounced with different tones
(and written differently). 

Art is Coca-Cola.


The buddha of Modern Art ?

'Everything is art, everything is politics...'
