Teh Tarik Man by Hong Yi

Malaysian-born mixed media artist ‘Red’ Hong Yi (Previously here) is back with this stunning works of art called 'Teh Tarik Man' made of 20,000 stained tea bags.

Red individually stained the teabags in 10 different shades by steeping them in hot water. Their color varies depends on the temperature and amount of water used — the lesser and hotter the water, the more they were stained. The darker tones were made with food dye.

The tea bags were then carefully stapled and attached to a grid of wiremesh and hung from a wooden frame.

It took her two months to complete this portrait, and it was on display at the World Economic Forum this past January.
