0 FOOD ART By HONG YI

Hong Yi, is the artist who gives a whole new meaning to the phrase 'playing with your food'!  A Malaysian born artist-architect, she goes by the nickname 'Red', because her surname, Hong, sounds like the word 'red' in Mandarin.

Hong Yi doesn't ask for much when creating these works of art: the image had to be comprised entirely of food and the only backdrop could be a white plate.




Her painting of Yao Ming with a basketball and Jay Chou using coffee were Youtube hits, and she was featured in media around the world including Huffington Post, Wall Street Journal, ABC and the Daily Mail. Her other work includes portraits Ai Weiwei using 100,000 sunflower seeds and Zhang Yimou with 750 pairs of socks and bamboo sticks.







Here you can see Hong Yi putting the final touches on her masterpiece made out of red cabbages along with basil seeds for the hair!
