Red Hong made this cool portrait using 750 pairs of socks, held together with pins and bamboo sticks. The portrait is of Zhang Yimou, a famous Chinese film director whose movies often reflect the beauty of the Chinese culture through the use of bamboos and traditional costumes.
“When I first moved to Shanghai, I stumbled upon an old residential alleyway and saw bamboo sticks poking out of windows with laundry hanging onto them, waving in the air. I thought that was an incredibly beautiful sight. And the amazing thing is seeing something so traditional in a modern, bustling city like Shanghai.”
