Whether it’s with coffee, chopsticks, or lunch… artist Red Hong Yi is very good at creating art with whatever’s available. This time, the Malaysian artist wanted to create a large-scale piece that would pay tribute to her homeland and the process of making the Malaysian sweet tea, Teh Tarik.
This time, Red’s medium of choice was about 20,000 tea bags, steeped to create varying shades of color and tone. The used tea bags were then placed together into panels, and then hung to form the picture of a vendor pulling tea.
Be sure to check out the video below too… Red’s creative process is pure awesome. Her tea-pouring skills… not so much.
