Chinese Pop Star Jay Chou Immortalized via Coffee Cup Rings
The artist statement on Shanghai-based Hong Yi’s website reads: “I love to create art. Not with the usual paintbrush and watercolour and pencils though – I like to grab whatever I can get hold of – rocks, ketchup, milk, salt, shirts – and turn them into art. It’s more fun that way!”
Case in point: Hong’s latest work, a portrait of Chinese pop star Jay Chou, is comprised entirely of coffee cup rings. The larger-than-life piece, which attempts to replicate the look and feel of a sepia-toned photograph, took the artist approximately 12 hours to complete.
