Set as one of the original local names in the collectibles scene, Daniel Yu is a prolific resin-slinger who creates jaw-dropping works! Heavily influenced by an upbringing steeped in local tradition and pop culture ephemera, his works combine both worlds of imagination, yet remain largely shaped by his personal experiences. Best represented by his macabre-themed characters, including his iconic Jiangshi creations, Daniel’s toy releases see a cult following amongst the urban and subculture art scene.
Paying tribute to the Jiangshi together with 13 other key local artists, Daniel celebrates this macabre form as an artistic muse and inspiration – elevating the classic folklore character from a cinematic genre into a pop culture art icon through showcasing various creative artistic reimaginations of the Jiangshi at BLAXK.
