What can you do with 64,000 chopsticks, a load of creativity and much perserverance?
A challenge, that Malaysian artist Red Hongyi conquered for kungfu legend Jackie Chan's 60th birthday. Using the aforementioned wooden sticks, she created a unique portrait of him with disposable bamboo chopsticks collected from various cafes, stalls and factories in Zhejiang and Beijing in China.
Happy 60th, Jackie!
"I used disposable bamboo chopsticks to show that disposable materials can be reused and made into something else more meaningful and beautiful," said the artist in the description of her YouTube video.
Jackie Chan was cool enough to let himself be featured in the video, while the finished portrait was presented to him at a recent concert on 6 April. So before you throw that pair of wooden chopsticks away, think about the next celebrity that you want to impress. Who knows, you might get Justin Bieber to appear in your next YouTube video and become the next YouTube celebrity.
