‘Tiger Express’: Collaboration with East & Oriental Express and Save Wild Tigers
Raise Awareness of Wild Tigers
01st Oct 2019
In September 2019 Tsai has partnered up with East and Oriental Express and ‘Save Wild Tigers’, a global tiger conservation charity, to launch the Tiger Express.
To commence on Sept. 7, the railway route aims to raise awareness of the plight of the world’s few remaining wild tigers. According to the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), there are now only 3,800 wild tigers left in the world. As an ambassador of the Save Wild Tigers, Tsai created a tiger-themed art for two carriages of the E&O train.
“I wanted to create a visual reminder of the majesty of tigers, that in a similar way to the train, travel through Southeast Asia. I have done this by curating tiger inspired artworks along the external livery of two of the carriages. The design fuses traditional eastern artistic techniques and imagery with western references to create an original style that seeks to establish balance and harmony. Inspired by my Tiger Art on Canvas, it’s a powerful reminder of the beauty of these majestic creatures” explains Tsai.
