The latest project from Chinese artist Ai Weiwei comes courtesy of a box of designer pieces from emerging brands stocked at Dover Street Market to photograph for V Magazine. Given free reign to shoot “in whatever manner he chose,” the thought- provoking artist chose to stand the models on pedestals while wearing items from the likes of Hood By Air, Gosha Rubchinskiy and more, as buckets of paint were then poured onto their heads.

Enjoy the images and keep an eye out for the print to hit stockists on November 13.
