“i was inspired by how public offices have A3 photos of their leaders, gold framed to be worshipped and reminded that he is the highest high, watching over you. i believe, as a counter move, every art-loving home and office cubicle should hang a picture of Ai Weiwei as Chairman Mao, it should be an image made angrily, in a shoddy, made-in-china mass produced Warholian silkscreen way – a method of printmaking which is, coincidentally, the only way I know how to make prints. Serendipity? Sure, why not.”
