3 SnapFacts about Ai Weiwei:

*His 2 gold-plated animal head sculptures set his auction record of £2.8m ($4.3m). Ai Weiwei’s previous auction record of $1.2m (£735,000) was set by Map of China.

*Ai Weiwei’s works are held in the collections of Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and Museum of Modern Art in New York, among others.

*Ai Weiwei is a heavy metal musician. His most recent album was titled “The Divine Comedy” and he has released two singles on his YouTube Channel. The video for the first single, “Dumbass”is a dramatisation of the artist’s arbitrary 81-day detention in 2011. His second, “Laoma Tihua” is filmed in the style of a hidden camera and documents several instances of dubious police behaviour.
