Artist Inspiration: Red Hong Yi
"Known as 'the artist who paints without a paintbrush', she creates mixed media installations by reinterpreting everyday materials through the accumulation of objects." Her work reminds us of the power of searching for art and creative solutions in our immediate surroundings. At the end of the day, you don't necessarily need fancy or expensive art materials to exercise your creative muscle. Check out her portfolio here to learn more about the amazing variety of materials she over the course of her career to
explore a range of ideas; "It’s become even more evident to me that I want to focus on portraits that express my Asian heritage, and themes that focus on gender and race, especially after all we’ve seen during this quarantine period." Special thanks to the artist for permission to share this image from her Instagram account. And yes...that image is made out of tea leaves!
