Hong Yi, who goes by the nickname ‘Red’, is a Malaysian artist-architect. She was given the nickname because her name, Hong, sounds like the word ‘red’ in Mandarin. Known as the artist who ‘loves to paint, but not with a paintbrush’, her works have been featured by media around the world including Huffington Post, Wall Street Journal, ABC, CNN and the Daily Mail. She has since traveled to USA, Italy, Germany, China, Malaysia, Australia and Hong Kong to present her work. She currently lives and works between Shanghai and Malaysia.
In every day in March, Yi created an illustration made with food, she only had two rules: 1) she must only use food and 2) she must place them on a white plate.
