“Red” Hong Yi is one of Feel Desain’s favourite and most-featured artists, and now we have another awesome project of hers to show you.
Red is best-known for her portrait work, using unusual and unexpected materials such as melted candles, seeds, and socks. If you’ve never heard of her, you should check out her portraits of singer Adele, actor Jackie Chan, basketball player Yao Ming, Facebook entrepreneur Mark Zuckerberg, Chinese film director Zhang Yimou, artist WeiWei, singer Jay Chou, or her World Cup portraits of football stars to get an idea of what she can do, or read the interview we did with her back in 2014.
For this fun project, Red recreated NFL star Franco Harris’ Immaculate Reception using a super-hydrophobic chemical on astro-turf, and then threw white paint over the lot, leaving the impressive image behind. The American Football-themed work of art comes just in time for the Superbowl next week, and was part of Wix.com‘s #ItsThatEasy Big Game campaign. The work certainly looks easy to do, but it definitely took a lot of hard work to make such an impressive final piece. Watch the video below.
