At First, You Would Have No Idea Why This Girl Has Thousands Of Chopsticks. Then Step Back..
This is Hong Yi, known as “Red.”
Red is both an artist and an architect.
Jackie Chan’s art director contacted her, hoping to commission her to make something for Jackie’s 60th birthday.
She decided to make a portrait…
But it was unlike any you have ever seen before.
It was made entirely out of chopsticks.
Jackie had always been supportive of her work.
He saw her other portraits using unique mediums, like socks or coffee rings, and was entranced.
So, Red was hired to create his 60th birthday portrait.
She spent a month collecting 64,000 chopsticks, in Zhejiang and in Beijing
She tied the chopsticks into different bundle sizes with strings. Then, she hung them all from a steel frame.
Red presented the finished portrait at his birthday concert, in front of 10,000. And to think, she just started out with a YouTube channel, posting her work.
