Ai Weiwei at The Royal Academy London

When I heard about Ai Weiwei’s exhibtion at the Royal Academy of Arts London I knew I couldn’t miss it.

I decided to go on a day trip to London by myself. Luckily I booked a cheap¬†flight during Ryanair’s sale, going early in the morning and flying back again in the evening. It worked out perfectly.

I have been a fan of Ai Weiwei’s for a long time now, both in his activism and art. When I first discovered Ai Weiwei I remember having to read everything I could find about him, I watched all his movies; what an interesting character. During a trip to Beijing last September I got to see his work for the first time in person.

What a fantastic exhibition, I enjoyed it immensely, and already look forward to my next Ai Weiwei exhibition.
