JACKY TSAI | 'LOTUS PLAY' APPEARS ON SHANGHAI TANG CHINA SET

July 30th 2014
In May Eyestorm released Jacky Tsai’s stunning Shanghai Tang series, a set of six limited print editions exclusively available at Eyestorm.

Now the luxury brand has released the Blue Lotus collection, which consists of a plate, teapot, cup & saucer, sugar bowl, centrepiece plate, tea jar and tray that all feature imagery taken from one of the prints, Lotus Play.

Taking inspiration from the iconic blue and white porcelain that originated in China, and the ‘willow’ pattern, which was developed in Europe later in the 18th century to imitate such patterns (apparently in attempt to copy Chinese designs to show they could be as good or better than the Chinese), Jacky has brought Lotus Play up to date by featuring contemporary imagery such as bicycles, sewing machines and acrobats floating around the traditional Eastern landscapes that were prevalent in the historic compositions.

Despite the surreal and out of context nature of the modern motifs Jacky has used, there’s an uplifting energy and a fortuitous harmony about Lotus Play that makes it extremely endearing and a pleasure to explore.

See Lotus Play and the five other works in the Shanghai Tang series here.

Henrik Simonsen’s most recent screenprint edition, Untamed, sees the artist use the rich, heavy, warm light of late summer as influence for the colours he uses in this 15-colour screenprint. With cool blue tones against deep crimson and russet, the work also captures the play of sunlight and shadow that is so typical of the climate in the Western hemisphere at the height of its glory - just before it descends into Fall.
August 25th 2016
Across twenty-five limited editions of individual designs that our gallery have launched since 2012, almost 1000 hand-printed works have been created with the artist in a five year period. From these prints, approximately 800 have found homes in both public and private collections.

In our fast-paced, ever-changing world, where it seems we can barely keep up with the rapid development of technology, Jacky Tsai, an artist whose work juxtaposes the old and new, past and present, east and west, quite aptly explores the theme of AI technology in his new lenticular print edition - Artificial Intelligence.

DO YOU HAVE A DAMIEN HIRST TO SELL?
Valium
With two major exhibitions during the Venice Biennale, 2017 has been a year which has increased the awareness of Damien Hirst. With Hirst still actively releasing new print editions, many collectors focus on his earlier work from 2000 and before, such as Valium, Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD), Opium, Beautiful, Galactic, Exploding Screenprint (Spin) and Painting-by-Numbers.

If you have one of the above prints that you are potentially interested in selling, please do get in touch with us via the Contact page, which you can find here.
