|Hong Yi, also known as Red|
|Red's adaption of Edvard Munch's 'The Scream"|
I emailed Red and asked if it was okay if I showed her work in this forum and she said "go for it". I thought that was pretty nice. Her website is redhongyi.com
The art she makes using food is quite fun. I especially enjoyed the ones which were inspired by well known works of art. She made one of these works of art using food each day as she was having a break from making the more time consuming installations.
You can see her make the portrait of Tan Sri Francis Yeoh on video. Her medium is that ring from the bottom of your coffee cup. The final portrait is at the end of this post.
Please also have a look of this video of Red making a portrait of the 1991 Nobel Peace prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi. She made it out of 2000 white carnations and red food colouring. Each carnation was in a container of a different amount of food colouring so that a tonal representation was created. The flowers and red colour have significance to the sitter.
