The strikingly vibrant artworks by artist Jacky Tsai, currently adorn the pristine white walls of gallery Contemporary by Angela Li, for his solo exhibition, Human Nature. Instantly captivating viewers, the vivid hues of the work enrich the numerous intricacies contained within the pieces. Highlighting the inherent energy of the work, the details also reveal contradictory social imageries juxtaposed: traditional and modern objects, Chinese and Western characters, and scenes from present– day and ancient times. Through cleverly fusing elements of Western pop art with ancient Chinese crafts, Tsai explores the dynamics of cultural exchange and complexities of modern life aesthetically, thematically and always with a humorous, whimsical twist.
