ABOUT HONG YI RED

HONG YI, RED

HONG YI, RED (b. 1986, Malaysia) describes herself as an artist who ‘paints without a paintbrush.’ Red is an artist who transforms simple, everyday materials into installations. She uses conventionally found materials like tea bags, chopsticks, socks and straws, to create installations that are often meticulously calculated and planned. Committed to the artistic goal of redefining the notion of unconventional beauty, Red collaborates with artisans and innovators across industries, ranging from technology to culture, to transform our approach to art.

Red earned her Master of Architecture from the University of Melbourne, Australia (2010). The architect-turnedartist classifies her work as experimental. Her background in architecture influences her way of approaching art from planning her work to designing and constructing them. Her work has been exhibited internationally, such as in the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco, USA (2018); Anchorage Museum, Alaska, USA (2017); Design Miami, Miami, USA (2015); and World Economic Forum, Davos, Switzerland (2015). She was awarded the Australian Young Entrepreneur Award (2013), and the Perspective Global Hong Kong ’20 Under 40’ designers award (2013); while dubbed as one of the ‘11 Art World Entrepreneurs You Should Know’ by Sotheby Institute (2018), ‘19 Future Chasers’ by Australia Unlimited (2014), and the Artling's ‘Top Female Asian Artists’ (2018).
