Amazing creations of Red Hong Ji from unexpected materials are becoming more and more popular. This time she decided to celebrate the tradition of making a portrait of Malaysia’s street vendor of tea from tea bags. The Malaysian artist created an installation called “The Tarik Man” out of 20,000 tea bags for the World Economic Forum in Davos last month. She says it took about two months to build the 3 meters by 2 meters piece, which ended up weighing more than 200 kg.
