Fifth Birthday & Ai Weiwei

Just been to the PV of Ai Weiwei’s exhibition at the RA and I really think everyone should see it. He is a courageous and totally committed artist whose ability to stand up to the corrupt moribund regime under which the Chinese live is admirable and inspiriting.

I went partly as a little celebration for my own fifth birthday off the booze, but that achievement is as nothing by comparison with his.
