He is a trickster.

"I first heard about Ai Weiwei when I read about his porcelain sunflower seeds causing respiratory issues in visitors to his free art installation at the Tate Modern, London. He became internationally known after working with Herzog & de Meuron on the Bird’s Nest for the Beijing Olympics. He caused a scandal in the art world when he took photographs of himself in the process of breaking a 2000 year old Chinese urn from the Han dynasty that was an archaeological treasure."
