Where's Weiwei?

With Wally?

Apparently not.

In Beijing?

No, not right now.

At Wikipedia?

Well, he was . . . earlier.

In London?

Yes, everywhere there. Or so says Rakewell, writing for Apollo Magazine:
Seeing as circumstances have prevented Ai Weiwei from getting out much over the past few years, it's perhaps unsurprising that the artist has been taking advantage of his trip to London.

Since Ai arrived in Rakewell's home town last week for his forthcoming Royal Academy show, barely a moment has passed that hasn't resulted in a new Instagram post. From the day he arrived, when we were treated to a fetching set of topless selfies, the artist's camera phone has been working overtime.
Go there, too, and see Weiwei at ease at work in a self-reflective mood. But who - you ask - is Rakewell? Well, he's the new guy on the street, or as Apollo Magazine introduces him:
Introducing Rakewell, Apollo's wandering eye on the art world. Look out for regular posts taking a rakish perspective on art and museum stories.
Make note of it!

Obviously in whatever type of detention/persecution Weiwei has suffered, he has been fed well.

Yeah, whatever happened to old-school, starvation torture . . .
