JACKY TSAI AND HIS INNOVATIVE CHINESE POP ART
     

Born in Shanghai, Jacky Tsai is best known in the public eye for his creation of the iconic floral skull for Alexander McQueen. In the past eight years things have moved fast for the London-based artist.

Tsai has constantly developed his 'Chinese Pop Art' and is never afraid to try new creative routes, keeping plenty of references from his Chinese background and upbringing as well as western pop art. His exhibition in NYC includes new work with characters such as Chinese emperors, geishas and warriors, playfully engaging with mermaids, Storm Troopers, Batman and a hung-over Superman.

JACKY TSAI IN FASHION
     

From his years with Alexander McQueen and running his own fashion label in the years after, Jacky Tsai has close ties to the fashion world.

Drawing inspiration from traditional Chinese wallpaper and its repetitive patterns, there is a strong link to printed fabrics. This brought him to a collaboration with luxury brand Shanghai Tang to develop creative styles for their 20th Anniversary in 2014.
