If you don’t know already, this week is Asian Art week in New York City. It ends March 24th, so you have time to visit the many galleries and museums in NYC to see it all for yourself.
In the meantime, we want to shine a light on an Asian Artist we are excited about, Jon Tsoi. Jon Tsoi is a prolific contemporary artist, who creates blindfold medicine art, and has a collection that we’re sure will fill several auction houses one day.

You can find hundreds of videos of him on Youtube to see just how prolific Jon Tsoi is at creating with his art medicine.
