V&A Select is a new collection of artist prints commissioned by the V&A. Each print is available in an edition of just 75. The artists were chosen for the way their work connects with the V&A and creates the opportunity for a new dialogue with the collection.

Kustaa Saksi’s print, commissioned by the V&A, is based on an early 16th-century millefleurs tapestry in the museum’s collection.  The artwork reimagines the narrative of the tapestry as a meeting between a Unicorn and Horus, wandering through a field of flowers. Using multiple layers of pattern, an interesting link between woven tapestries and screen-printing is formed. The combination of bold colours and ornamentation creates new hues and textures that are optically mixed by the viewer.

Kustaa Saksi is a Finnish artist and designer based in Amsterdam specialising in graphic storytelling through patterns, textile art and installation. His work focusses on ideas of nature seen from the abstracted edge of perception, creating fantastical worlds of playful, paradoxical, and troubling yet inviting shapes and psychedelic atmospheres. In 2020 Kustaa was shortlisted for the V&A Illustration awards, and in 2017 he was commissioned by the V&A in collaboration with IC-98 for Collecting Europe resulting in A World in Waiting, an installation in the Norfolk House Music Room.  

Created exclusively for the V&A.
