Jackie Chan's Face Recreated Using 64,000 Chopsticks

Hong Yi Jackie Chan

Do you remember our previous story on visual artist Hong Yi? She's the artist who created this impressive portrait of Yao Ming using a painted basketball.

She's now working on another famous portrait, but this time her chosen medium is vastly different. She's swapped paint and basketballs, for chopsticks and string to create her next iconic portrait.

And her subject? None other than the legendary Jackie Chan.

It wasn't easy to choose the material for Jackie's piece. He is a world famous actor, exceptional martial arts fighter, environmentalist & one of the most well-known faces!

She spent a month in Zhejiang and Beijing sourcing 64,000 disposable bamboo chopsticks for the artwork. After tying them into bundles, she then set about aligning them to create Chan's features and famous expression.

This art installation is a tribute to the life, art and cultural significance of Jackie Chan.

To experience the full effect of Yi's work, you need to be facing it front on - if you view it from the side, her illusion dissolves into a wave of chopsticks dangling from a steel frame.

You can find out more about Hong Yi's latest work and creations via her official Facebook page.
