Unusual Portrait of Zhang Yimou in Shanghai Alley, Hong Yi aka Red

Red (Hong Yi), an innovative artist and architect from Malaysia living in Shanghai, constructs a portrait of Chinese film director Zhang Yimou from socks, bamboo rods, and pins. Cutting through an alley one day, she was struck by the sight of laundry drying on bamboo rods, a old-fashioned image in a city that is ultra modern. Red was inspired, and here is the result. Look at the faces of the people of the neighborhood! This is truly art reaching out.
