Apple celebrates CNY

In time for the Chinese New Year, Apple gathered five young Chinese artists to “reinvent classic motifs to deliver new year blessings with a contemporary twist”. Using Apple products like the iPad Pro, MacBook Pro and the iMac together with creative apps, the result of this collaboration is five artworks that incorporate both traditional symbols with contemporary references.

Quirky, yet full of Chinese symbolisms, these colourful artworks can be downloaded as wallpaper for your Macs or iOS devices here.

Apple has also brought these artists to various Apple Stores across Hong Kong and China in the coming weeks for them to share their stories behind the collaboration.

Starting on 10 Jan’17 where you can meet the illustrator behind the Lucky RoosterVicto Ngai in Apple Canton Road, Hong Kong.

There are four more sessions scheduled for the other artists:

  • 14 Jan will be Ye Hongxing at Apple Wangfujing,Beijing, China
  • 18 Jan will be Zhou Fan at Apple Parc Central,Guangdong, China
  • 20 Jan will be Jiang Shan at Apple Pudong,Shanghai China
  • 22 Jan will be Eszter Chen, location to be determined.
