Dissident artist

, May 22, 2013

Dissident Chinese artist Ai Weiwei looks at his computer in his studio in Beijing on May 22. Ai made his first foray into the musical world on Wednesday with the release of the top single from his debut album, a song called "Dumbass" that takes inspiration from his detention in 2011. The video for the heavy metal song, which was directed by Ai with cinematography by acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Doyle, depicts Ai's 81 days in secretive detention in 2011, which sparked an international outcry.
