JACKY TSAI | GROWING INTEREST IN THE PRIVATE MARKET
September 14th 2018
This summer it is seven years ago Eyestorm exhibited the first work by the Chinese artist Jacky Tsai in a group exhibition in Mayfair, London. During the years that followed, we have released close to thirty exclusive print editions with Tsai and showed the artist’s work at numerous international art fairs in Asia, Europe and United States - and it has been an incredible journey and a privilege to work with a talented artist like Jacky Tsai. 2018 has been the year where Tsai took his first steps from being an emerging artist into a more established one.

NEWS FROM EYESTORM
With the solo show at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art (MMOMA) in February, Tsai reached an important mile stone in an artist career. A museum show not only show the artist’s work in a retrospective light, but also sends a signal that a curator in a public cultural institution has recognised the work as an important contribution to the public. To some collectors, it may be puzzling to see that this recognition of Tsai’s work came initially from Moscow, but Russia and China have a cultural connection that goes beyond centuries of trade and geographical borders. The artist’s work is often referred to as Chinese Pop Art, a genre which exemplify the collision between two cultures or worlds which are destined to meet, and his visual-narrative works, with references to traditional Chinese literature, legends and native landscapes are cleverly weaved with acrobats, fighter planes and Western superheroes. It is the contribution of combining two, often contradicting, cultures which was recognised with the exhibition at MMOMA.

With the museum show and on the back of solo shows in London, Los Angeles and Hong Kong, the last 12 months has seen a growing interest in the artist’s work. Pieces such as Chinese Floral Skull Lenticular (2015), Sanctuary Skull (Ace of Clubs) (2015), Vermilion Light (2013) and Stained Glass Skull (2013) have all been sold in the private marked at very supportive prices. Last week a ‘Floral Skull (Black & White)’ (2005) was acquired by a collector in South East Asia; a print edition of only 5, and a piece which was inspired by his work with Alexander McQueen some years earlier. The same ‘Floral Skull’ became the inspiration for later pieces such as the Soul Harvest and Vermilion Garden and others.

With the popularity of his work in the private market we have also seen interesting results from charity auctions in 2018. In February, MMOMA and Lord Mark Poltimore from Sotheby’s hosted a dinner in Moscow where a few select pieces by Tsai were included, and in July a Fly Me to the Moon (Palladium) was sold at the prestigious Summer Auction in benefit of the Philip Johnson Foundation at The Glass House Museum in Connecticut, USA. During his life, Philip Johnson established himself as one the most astute collectors on the East Coast and the annual Summer Auction has a long list of artists supporting the foundation, such as Jeff Koons and James Welling.

We all know that bidding at charity auctions sometimes do get a bit carried away in the spirit of supporting a good cause, and last month everyone was in for a surprise when a NY Cityscape Stamp (2016) print was sold at a Chinese charity auction for an astonishing RMB 400,000 (£45,000 / $58,000) in support of ‘Hoops for Hopes’. The print was an AP from the edition of 33, printed with glow-in-the-dark ink showing the Statue of Liberty when it is dark. This price level may not reflect the value at a real auction, but it does show Tsai's emerging status on a global scale.

A natural next step and recognition of Jacky Tsai’s playful Chinese Pop Art will be a regular participation at the auctions for prints and multiples at the major auction houses, such as Bonham, Christies, Phillips or Sotheby’s. Where it can often take a couple of years and persistence to get into the catalogues, we have also experienced that it can suddenly develop quickly and as Tsai’s work becomes more widely sought after, we could see the first auction results in 2019 or 2020.

The new print edition by contemporary artist Lucie Bennett represents a continuation of the artist’s recent focus on more intimate portrayals of her figures alongside a softer colour palette. Here, two figures are entangled in an intimate and soft embrace. This is a quiet and personal moment between two lovers, and Bennett is able to present not just their romantic passion, but also the warmth and comfort of their embrace. The simplicity of the imagery and colours forms the illusion of the two figures as completely intertwined - blurring the distinctions between his body and hers.
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.
