Jackie Chan portrait made of 64,000 CHOPSTICKS! :) Such an honour working with him on this in Beijing!!!
Jackie turns 60 this year and being an artist who paints without a paintbrush, I spent a looong time thinking about what material to use for his portrait! He is an actor, a kungfu master, an environmentalist and a world-reknowned 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 reused materials can be made into something else, that can be 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. So honoured to present it at his concert on 6/4/14. Happy 60th birthday, Jackie!
