Among China's Finest

Being one of the relevant contemporary Chinese artists, Tunan is all but alone. We at Widewalls have recently included more than hundred of Chinese finest contemporaries as they shake the world of art in their own way. Some of them are more controversial like Ren Hang and Huang Yishan or insightful like Liu Bolin but one of them surely attracts more attention than anyone else.  Ai Weiwei is best known for his conceptual installations that usually tend to spark a dialogue between the contemporary world and traditional Chinese values.
