To commemorate award-winning design studio White Jacket’s 10th anniversary, nine young artists were invited to create pieces in their signature style, based on the concept of celebration and encompassing local elements and history. Evergreen by Henry Lee, for example, depicts a blooming bonsai, which, like a company or brand, requires patience, perseverance and vision to nurture and grow. The piece represents White Jacket’s growth over the last 12 years.
