FAD has picked some limited edition art products for your Christmas list featuring Ai Weiwei, Jeff Koons, Annie Lebowitz, David Hockney and André Butzer – a scarf, a print edition and some books happy shopping.
Papercutting is a traditional Chinese art going back 2,000 years. The colored, intricately cut papers are used as a story-telling medium in festivities, for prayers, and as everyday decoration. The red scarf takes its motif from a papercut created by Ai Weiwei as part of his Papercut Portfolio, published by TASCHEN in 2019: Cats and Dogs, reflecting on his work from the 1990s, when he returned to Beijing after a decade-long stay in New York to find his own artistic identity.

Locked down in Normandy, David Hockney closely followed the changing seasons, using his iPad to spontaneously depict his impressions of the surrounding landscape. The project became a lifeline for him, and a message of hope he offered to us. For this artist’s book, Hockney has compiled 220 (plus four bonus) iPad paintings from 2020, each illustration tipped in on blue paper stock. The book is accompanied by an extra volume with facsimiles of two sketchbooks created in the build-up to the project.
