Shan Jiang is London-based illustrator who’s work is strongly influenced by his native Shanghai: it skyscrapers and bungalows, contemporary concepts, traditional superstitions, communist ideology and flourishing subcultures.
Shan draws his inspiration from a number of sources including Chinese Meticulous Art, Ukiyo-e, Bauhaus design, Durer, manga and anime to create fantastical and detailed illustrations with a burst of colour and energy, packed with bewitching narratives and psychedelic dream-like environments.Shop Now
Paying Homage to the Tiger
Shan Jiang explores and interprets Chinese culture in a way that resonates with Johnnie Walker to create gifts of prosperity for the ones that Never Walk Alone.
Shan’s ambition for this work was to start this Year with positivity and use Chinese mythology and the ideas of progress to inspire his designs.
Choosing the mythical Tiger With Wings for the New Year Limited Edition Johnnie Walker, he was inspired by the popular Chinese phrase “Like a tiger that has grown wings” to illustrate the craft of Johnnie Walker and the rare, handpicked whiskies that are blended exquisitely in each bottle.Shop Now
