Aung San Suu Kyi Portrait Made Of Flowers

When I buy flowers, I usually put them in a vase. I have never thought of coloring them to make a portrait of 2000 flowers. But I think it´s a fantastic idea and it´s what RED did. Enjoy watching this amazing video.

Malaysian-born Hong Yi spent one third of her life in Australia and moved to Shanghai in 2011 to work as an architect for an Australian company. After her full-time job, she dedicates her spare time to her various art projects including anything from tagging bikes to thank its owner for not going by car or creating a Justin Biber portrait using nothing but ordinary chili paste. To check out more of her work, please click here to visit Red´s website and check out her portfolio.

In this video, RED uses 200 white flowers and red dye to to portrait the famous Burmese opposition politician Aung San Suu Kyi. She is the chairperson of the National League for Democracy in Burma. Even though she had been detained under house arrest for more than 15 years, she never gave up.

“You should never let your fears prevent you from doing what you know is right” (Aung San Suu Kyi).
