The Fine Art Society in London presents the second solo show of Chinese artist Jacky Tsai following the success of his first in 2015.
Jacky Tsai, the creator of Alexander McQueen’s floral skull, presents an ironic contemporary take on the political and social ideologies that shape China’s identity.
“The Harmonious Society”, running at The Fine Art Society in London until 8 November 2016, features a new body of work by London-based Chinese artist Jacky Tsai, best known as the creator of the iconic floral skull image made for late British fashion designer Alexander McQueen.
Born in Shanghai in 1984, Jacky Tsai graduated with an MFA from Central St Martin’s in London, and has been exhibiting worldwide, with key shows in London, New York City, Singapore and Hong Kong. His dynamic art practice combines traditional Chinese painting techniques with references to western Pop Art styles. His subjects are also a playful juxtaposition of western and eastern iconographies, such as superheros like Superman, Batman and Robin and Wonder Woman, and Chinese mythological figures like the Yellow Emperor, the Monkey King and Chang E as well as court ladies, set in ancient Chinese palaces and gardens.
