Ai Weiwei

Ai Weiwei is a hardcore Chinese artist and activist who is not afraid to be outspoken in his criticism of the ruling Communist Party in China. He definitely stands up for his beliefs with what he produces through his creative efforts.

According to an article titled "Chinese Authorities Detain Outspoken Artist" in the Wall Street Journal's Digital Network/ Asia News, dated April 3, 2011, he was detained today "as he tried to board a flight from Beijing to Hong Kong, making him the latest target of a sustained clampdown on dissent that is raising concern among many Western governments." 

He is truly inspirational.
