Red Hong is an inventive and resourceful artist, who has proven she can create a painting without a paint brush! A few months ago Red Hong caught our attention with her Jay Chou portrait made out of coffee cup stains. Red’s most recent project has us in awe once again, this time she has taken socks, bamboo sticks and pins to create a portrait of Zhang Yimou (a famous Chinese film director, who directed the movies Hero, House of Flying Daggers and Memoirs of a Geisha).
Read Red’s personal explanation and her inspiration behind the project. Watch this video below to see Red’s process of how she turns 750 pairs of socks (because shirts were too big and expensive) into Zhang Yimou’s face!
