I recently came across the incredible works of Artist/Architect Red Hong Yi who ‘paints’ without using a paintbrush. Red is also an architect who graduated from Melbourne University. Ever since I discovered her work I have been following her on instagram, constantly inspired by her creativity. And so when she asked people to join her in the #creativemarch project where she creates pieces of art from food by using a plate as canvas, I joined and came up with some ‘art’ myself. It was great fun coming up with new ideas, sometimes getting stuck or having plans backfire (which sometimes lead to better ideas later on!)
Another point to note is the power of social media such as instagram and twitter which allows people to showcase their work to literally the whole world. ‘Art’ today is definitely not confined to a gallery anymore but something so instant, fluid and accessible. I got to ‘meet’ and see other people who joined in the project, all through instagram, including rinnydindin and lovelimzy. I hope you enjoy these little plates of art and wish you all a great week!
“Never forget your beginner’s spirit!” This was made before I proceeded to make pizza for dinner, inspired by Japanese artist Yoshimoto Nara. Made from tomato paste, red capsicum, garlic, broccoli and orange peel on a wrap.
A photo to show my work in progress, using simple tools around the house such as this wooden skewer. I love this idea of using unusual and often ordinary mediums for art, art is for everybody and anyone can be creative! Duchamp styles.
