Never trust your things Ai Weiwei. When the Chinese artist Ai Weiwei was invited to a photo shoot clothing brands from Dover Street Market for V Magazine, he has not received any conceptual or ideological restrictions – all became a bit dirtier than expected!
The artist put people on pedestals, dressing them in Hood By Air, Sibling, Proper Gang, Gosha Rubchinskiy and poured a few gallons of paint on the heads of the stunned models. With the help of captured frames, colorful splashes were frozen in time, creating epic and very non-traditional fashion photo edition.
This is form of social turbulence. It is decorated and fascinates, disturbs and irritates. Sometimes looks silly, tacky, like dripping mess. It makes us gasp. This is fun. It gives us a reason to stop for a second and think about the beauty in the nonstandard its manifestations.
You decide: either Ai Weiwei has destroyed the hard work of designers either has created new works of art!
