Sunday inspiration

Happy Sunday, friends. ☺

Today's inspiration is Malaysian artist-architect Hong Yi, who is also known as Red. I discovered her blog, Oh I See Red, last week and immediately fell in love with her artwork. According to her blog, Red is mainly known as the artist who "loves to paint, but not with a paintbrush," and it's this use of unconventional materials that fascinates and intrigues me.

I've included two videos of  her work below. The first is a portrait of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, which Red has created by cutting slices from books, and the second is a coffee cup-stain portrait of musician Jay Chou. You can find many more examples of her work on her blog or on her Web site, found here. Enjoy!





Wishing you all a creative and inspirational Sunday. ☺

  2. The portrait from book slices is fantastic. How exciting it must be to have a mind that can envision such a possibility.

  4. Wow! How in the world does she visualize all that before she creates it?

    (I'd love to see what she does in a restaurant that has those paper coverings on the table and crayons!)
