First is he really a provocateur? If you are doing shocking art just for the sake of shocking and getting attention, well you are a provocateur. But in the case of Ai Weiwei, his art is the way he expresses his political views and instigate political activism. Ai is not just a provocateur but an artist that is concerned about the internal politics of his country.I do not think Ai has founded how far he can go because the cause of his actions go deeper than contemporary art. There is a wave of supporters that are calling for external media to expose the actions of the chinese government against Ai Weiwei, here is the link http://freeaiweiwei.org/
This is the new and re-loaded way of art. Art with a deep purpose and goal. Activist art. It does not matter if the Art is shocking or provocative as long as it is activist art. BUT!!!!!! There is a question that is arising right now!!!!!!!!! Would it matter if the art is disgusting or degrading as long as is activist art???????.???????????????
What do you think?????????

This is a blog to document the success and fails during the way to be a professional artist. I’ve been painting and loving it since I can remember. I have tried and quitted and tried again to be a serious artist for several years now. But I thing this is the one try for real. I think the lack of self confidence, low-self-esteem and a poor art environment have kept me from really going all the way. Wait!!!!! Am I blaming the environment for my lack determination. hmmm!!!! Well, There is no one or something to blame but me for not trying hard enough at being a professional artist. Let start from the beginning, let me give you my profile;
I am a stay at home mom who like to teach their children spanish and cooking.
I finish my bachelors degree in Mathematics at the University of Texas at El Paso
I was raise in Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico up to high school.
I got married at 20
I got pregnant at 2o
I am still married with the love of my life( I hate him when we fight but after reconciliation he is back to being my sweet loving honey)
I think this is my very informative profile, i will be updating it later on.
Are you a professional artist in the making???? I what to hear from you comment………
