Jacky Tsai: Life-size Floral Skullptures series, 2012
Each skullpture is made in leather and fibre-reinforced plastic as a unique piece (from a series of 10, each with unique colour combination).
Best known as the creator of the iconic floral skull image made for late British fashion designer Alexander McQueen’s Spring/Summer 2008 Menswear collection, Jacky Tsai combines traditional Chinese painting techniques and references with western Pop Art styles.
Born in China in 1984, Tsai grew up in Shanghai and after completing his BA at the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou, moved to London to study MA Illustration at Central St Martins, graduating in 2008. His debut solo show in 2010 at Salon Contemporary in Notting Hill proved to be a success and introduced him into the London art scene.
