Time’s Fantastic Cover Designed by Chinese Dissident Artist Ai Weiwei

Time’s latest issue features one hell of a cover. The illustration was created by the Chinese dissident/political activist/artist, Ai Weiwei. To produce the absolutely stunning art, Ai used traditional Chinese paper cutting.

“The image represents Ai’s acknowledgment of the country’s centrality in the world, while at the same time challenging China’s leaders to make the future a freer and more democratic one,” wrote Rick Stengel, Time’s managing editor.

Look, forget this week’s Cover Battle. We’re not doing one today because no magazine is beating Time. This is outstanding work.
