"Company Christmas Party - Company Christmas tells the real story of what happens at Santa's Christmas party. *Santa like any good boss is completely tanked off of a Keg of Nog. *Mrs. Clause concerned with the safety of her hard working olives is collecting sleigh keys. *Rudolph can party no more so he is passed out with his drinking buddy. *Of course there is always one or two people who get a little to drunk to early. Our lady olive is passed out in the corner while a not so sober olive draws a funny face on her and who can forget the crazy drunk running around with a kick me sign on his back. *There are always those olives who like to hook up at the company party. The 3 olives in the corner are toasting to seal the deal. *The martini glass is decorated to the hilt with Christmas light, and what Christmas party would be complete with out a Peppermint Candy Martini to keep the party going till the wee hours or however long these olives can last. *Santa's naughty list is definitely growing after this party. Are you on Santa Naughty or Nice list? "

After  twenty  years  in  the  New York art  scene, American artist  George Tsui  embarked on a creative journey into China in the pursuit of reaching the next level in his artistic career.  The grand and splendid  architecture  of  the forbidden city and  the mysterious and sensual character of  the Dun Huang cave were  his most immediate inspiration

Always fascinated and attracted to the rare and exotic, elements of fantasy are often present in Tsui's work. Chinese themes filled his imagination, and the idea of creating his own brand of classic romanticism, unrestrained by conventional reality, was deeply attractive to him. His models always dressed in exquisite silk gowns from the artist's personal collection of 20 authentic imperial dresses.  They pose in romantic, luxurious surroundings with a variety of antiques, artifacts, jewelry, flowers and birds.  

Tsui doesn't pretend to be painting the real thing but draws us into a fantasy where the signs of subterfuge are plain to see.  As the artist describes, "These pieces employ a dual technique of painting and sculpture that is traditionally ornate, yet abstract in the most modern sense of the word."

Paintings on Wood.  George basically uses particles of antique furniture and other antiques items and incorporates them into the surrounding of the paintings creating a 3 Dimensional look as a relief. This technique was applied mostly to his large compositions.  This process is very difficult and these pieces are extremely limited.

George Tsui was born in Hong Kong and moved to New York in the late 60s, studying first at the School of Visual Arts and later majoring in oil painting at the Art Students League.  While working at NBC he was awarded the prestigious 1997 Emmy Award for  Best Individual Art and Craft. Included in his works of that period are some movie posters, several paintings chosen for the 1984 Winter Olympics poster series, as well as limited edition art prints for the 1985 and 1986 'Night of 100 Stars" event for a tribute to The Centennial of The Actor's Fund of America.
