The Tian print by Gucci, a tropical take on bird and flower paintings that embellishes their new collection of leather goods and shoes for men and women, has been “remixed” by 24 artists upon invitation.
Tian, which in Chinese can mean Sky or Heaven, is a print that was inspired by Eastern culture’s “Bird and Flower” paintings of the 10th century and appropriated on bags, shoes, mobile phone covers and luggage in Gucci’s latest collection.
“The print represents a vision of the sublime that must be brief because it is so fleeting – the birds and flowers only hover in perfect harmony for a moment before falling away ” – Gucci
The design follows up on the first #GucciGram project – a “Tian” Room, an installation of a mirrored room covered in the print, designed by Alessandro Michele for Gucci’s recent No Longer/ Not Yet exhibit.
