Artist Missing...?

We heard a conceptual artist Ai Weiwei was arrested in his home country of China a few weeks ago.

His whereabouts or even if he is still alive, remains a mystery?

In October 2010 he was commissioned by the Tate, London to do an interactive exhibition for the gallery. He came up with a 100 million, porcelain, hand painted sunflower seeds-which people were free to interact with.

The exhibition was a resounding success but Ai's arrest has left a foul taste, rather than a nutty delight in our mouths due to the Chinese authorities's actions.
