Hong Yi, also known by her nickname, ‘Red’, is an artist known for creating pieces using everyday, unconventional materials.

She is inspired by human diversity and the nuances of the human experience, and hopes her work will continue to allow her to share with and learn from different people and cultures.

Red Hong Yi has started her Petals series when she realised that flower petals, particularly Gerbera petals, look very similar to feathers especially, when they are arranged on top of one another, layer by layer.

Check this out! It is pretty amazing!
