We’ve seen the work of Malaysian artist/architect “Red” Hong Yi before (here), but we had to revisit her work again because it’s just so good. This time, in keeping with her penchant for food-related art, Hong Yi created a portrait of international action star Jackie Chan’s face from chopsticks… 64,000 chopsticks to be exact. Suspended in bundles of various sizes from a steel frame and when viewed from a distance, the chopsticks bear an unmistakable likeness to the instantly recognizable famous face of Chan. We really admire out-of-the-box thinking like Hong Yi’s here. We have a hard time even gauging the amount of time and planning that went into this… such a creative expression of a brilliantly inspired thinker.

Malaysian artist/architect Hong Yi (otherwise simply known as Red) likes to play with food (much like Brock Davis and Christopher Boffoli). For her latest project, Creativity With Food, Yi is posting a new photo of her food art every day in March. These creations are excellent, and Yi reminds us that creativity is everywhere: “I hope this inspires you and makes you realize that you can get creative with anything, even with limited tools, n that like a child, you’ll see joy and fun even in ordinary, everyday items.” Those tools include chopsticks, skewers, a butter knife, and a bright, yellow “sun” made out of egg yolk, as well as ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard, and oyster sauce to illustrate a Campbell’s soup can.
