It's easy to think of Ai Weiwei and focus solely on the politics of his life and work which, of course, he intends to be considered and following his detention by the Chinese authorities in 2011 it is impossible not to. But one should not forget that Ai Weiwei is first and foremost a visual artist.
I love seeing peoples' reactions to my drawings. I enjoy the joy and surprise on their faces.' It's impossible not to notice Lafitte's passion for his work. 'I can't not draw!'
Just as Ayn Rand's Roark subversively demolishes the Corlandt building after promises are broken and his designs changed, these artists are undermining a society that no longer functions for the benefit of the common people. Their art not only brings home the reality of today's surveillance state, but asks, do we have to live this this?
As an author it is always nice to see one of your works top a specific category and I'm fortunate enough to have witnessed this a few times. I've topped the charts in Autobiographies (as a ghostwriter) Prisoners of War, and managed to scale the dizzy heights of the top ten with a crime fiction book and a true crime story.

You'd expect woodcuts to be quite dry, with the images rigid and lacking in artistic expression but not at all. The technical expertise in the 150 prints the RA has brought together is such that there is great detail in these prints with bodies outlined in curving sculpting lines, and cross-hatchings used for shadow.
As you weave between the blooming orange trees, which beguilingly give out an aroma of comforting honey in the spring, in the garden of the grand but homely house of the late great poet and author Robert Graves, you feel he'd achieved what every artist craves - an inspiring base, studio or home where you can create.
When you're thinking of a stylish UK city for a weekend away, I can guarantee that Dundee is not one that would pop into your head. Until I spent a weekend there earlier this month, words I would have used to describe this Scottish city is are dreary, run-down and boring.
Oliver began by creating a dramatic entrance, almost literally. You enter Fera via an arched veneer door into an area that was until recently an old electricity cupboard. A red curtain greets you as if you're backstage at the theatre. A swoosh and there is the Maitre D to welcome you.
As one of the oldest arts, opera has an air of magic but gravity too. But that doesn't mean it is for a stuffy, serious audience.
