Published by Hershey Desai
This research paper focuses on the life and work of Chinese born artist Ai Weiwei. Notoriously famous for his political stance against the Chinese Government, Ai Weiwei has expressed his viewpoints through his art for well over twenty years.
We will look into the design movements during his period, how he managed to create his art, and how did he use it to its maximum potential.
This paper has been divided into three parts.
The first part focuses on the origins of Ai Weiwei, his introduction in the art world, and the design methods and artists that influenced him most. We will also take an in-depth look at the artist’s design process, highlighting in general, some of his early works as examples.
The second part of the paper focuses on critically evaluating his design methods. This is further subdivided into three of Weiwei’s famous designs over the decade. Each artwork will be assessed in terms of concept, method of design, and impact on society.
The third part is a summarized compilation of our results about the artist and his work. Here we draw our personal opinions about the artist, whether his methods are logical and effective, and what we have personally learned from this project.
