“Today creativity is often born and find its voice in digital media, a vital source of visual culture.” – Alessandro Michele
Guccigram Tian is the second installment of Guccigram, a collaborative digital project involving artistic voices from around the world. The first was based around the Gucci Blooms and Gucci Caleido motifs. This one’s starting point is the new Gucci Tian print. ‘Tian’ in Mandarin, as most of you probably know, is the literal word for ‘sky’ or ‘heaven’. In Michele’s Tian print, hummingbirds and butterflies, referencing Chinese Bird and Flower paintings from the 10th century, float against a gorgeous landscape of tree branches and flower blooms. I’ve already purchased a few items (scarf, trousers) in this print and can’t get enough (Click here for shoppable Tian-print pieces)!
Curated by Michele, as in the first edition of Guccigram, artists have been asked to remix the Gucci Tian print through their eyes. All artists are Asian in keeping with the origins of this print.
More information on each individual piece and their artist can be found on Gucci’s microsite here. Click for more info and links to their Instagrams!
