Tsai & Yoshikawa
Since graduating from Royal College of Art in 2006, Tsai and Yoshikawa have worked collaboratively on large-scale projects and commissions. Tsai and Yoshikawa met in the Chelsea College of Art and Design in 2000. After gaining BA degrees in 2004, they continued their studies at the RCA, graduating with Masters of Art in Mixed-media textiles, and Sculpture respectively.
Tsai and Yoshikawaʼs different creative histories richly combine in their joint practice to provide forward thinking ideas. Individually their practices draw many parallels; both artists are experts in bold use of colour, pattern, form and structure. The duo design and produce unique sculptures and art installations, which are eye-catching, dynamic, and have intricate detail.
Tsai and Yoshikawaʼs work is often celebrative, offering dramatic visual impact to their locations. Their shared interest in modern materials and constantly exploring new methodʼs of manipulation make their work truly innovative and contemporary. The artists transform these landscapes with their utopian vision but often reference the local history and identity of the site. Tsai & Yoshikawa continue to work on diverse projects with councils, non-profit organisations and contemporary art centres creating both permanent and temporary site-specific art installations for indoor and outdoor spaces. A 27m sculptural commission by the artists was installed at St Thomas’s Hospital, London in July 2015.
