Coffee stain art by Hong Yi

Hong Yi is a Shanghai-based artist who creates interesting works with unusual mediums, ranging from coffee stains, sunflower seeds to actually, a basketball. The 26 year old whom also referred as RED, was recently in the spotlight for her stunning coffee stain portrait of Jay Chou and a representation of NBA player Yao Ming painted with basketball marks. Her works showcased an extreme tonal precision of light and dark. They also presented a spontaneous and unpretentious texture. I admire how she had challenged common techniques and mediums and really look forward to what she’s up next.
