Portrait Composed of Coffee Rings by Red

     Get a load of this girl, Hong Yi, but she goes by Red: She's a bangin young painter who found herself in Shanghai without a damn thing to paint with. Lucky she is so resourceful. Having grown up in Malaysia and studied abroad in Australia and Holland, but until recently her Chinese roots remained a mystery.
     Her newfound fascination with China's rich culture and history inspired this massive portrait of Jay Chou, comprised entirely of coffee rings, and several others featuring iconic Chinese figures, including Yao Ming painted with a basketball, a Zhang Yimou made out of socks! When was the last time you made a masterpiece out of your laundry?
