With his city-wide public exhibition, “Good Fences Make Good Neighbors” currently ongoing in New York City, renowned artist Ai Weiwei has also created two special edition artworks for Public Art Fund that are now on sale exclusively at eBay.
One of the featured pieces is Artist’s Hand, a rhodium-plated sculpture of Ai Weiwei’s as part of his Study of Perspective series, in which the artist photographed his hand “flipping off” significant landmarks and world monuments in a rejection of authority and political oppression, as a sign of individual expression.
Limited to 1,000 only, this piece is available now for $675 USD here.
The other artwork for sale consist of the Odyssey, a 24″ x 36” print depicting the global refugee condition in the style of a classic Greco-Roman frieze, which can be purchased here for $100 and limited to 1,000 units as well.
Furthermore, 100% of the proceeds will benefit Ai Weiwei’s current exhibition, “Good Fences Make Good Neighbors,” which is on view in 300+ locations in New York City until February 11, 2018.
