Don’t miss the project video inside

Jackie Chain, famous Hollywood actor, turns 60 this year and the amazing artist Red decided to give him unforgotten art work:

I spent a looong time thinking about what material to use for his portrait! He is an actor, a martial arts master, an environmentalist and is a world-renowned face! I finally decided on chopsticks – a symbol of the Chinese culture, Jackie has used chopsticks during his kungfu scenes in a few movies like the Fearless Hyena and Karate Kid. I used disposable bamboo chopsticks to show that disposable materials can be reused and made into something else more meaningful and beautiful. I spent a month collecting these chopsticks from cafes, stalls and factories in Zhejiang and Beijing, then tying each of them up.
There are 60 bamboo holders with skewers in them that form the Chinese character ‘long’ (dragon) in different styles, because Jackie’s Chinese name is ‘Chen Long’. So honoured to present it at his concert on 6/4/14. Happy 60th birthday, Jackie!
