Asian Artists Find Tian-Inspo in #GucciGram

By Caroline Wall

March 29, 2016

Earlier this month, Gucci presented the second installment of its art and design project, #GucciGram, inviting international artists to reimagine the company’s signature floral and geometric prints. While the first edition of #GucciGram last October focused on Gucci’s Blooms and Caleido motifs, #GucciGram Tian features works by Asian artists that incorporate the company’s Tian pattern, inspired by Chinese bird-and-flower paintings from the 10th-century.

Presented on a microsite by Gucci, artworks in the installment range from photography, to paintings, and collages to embroideries, all featuring the tropical flora and fauna of the original print. Participating artists include Charles Loh, a Singaporean sculptor juxtaposing glass terrariums with Tian-print wallpaper; Chen Tianzhuo, a Beijing artist combining traditional opera costumes with hip hop and the print’s iconic monkey; and Yile Yang, a Tokyo artist exploring our interactions with light, who projected the print onto the legs of a figure, creating a vibrant pandemic tattoo.
