The ever-inspiring artist has imitated the lifeless body of Syrian toddler Aylan Kurdi. He posed as the dead 3-year old boy just days after shutting his Danish show in protest against new asylum-seeker laws. He is famous as an artist and activist but some are questioning this latest image. It has been called “crude, thoughtless and egotistical” by The Spectator. Others have labelled it as a “horribly inappropriate banal publicity stunt”.  However, there is a long list of supporters who praise the artist for using his talent and reputation to spread the word. We strongly support Ai’s message as he brings attention to a crisis that needs exposure to ensure legislation doesn’t diminish the value of people. We hope to see more from this controversial creative in the near future.
