Co-starring: the actual Jackie Chan.
It was Jackie Chan's birthday on April 7. The iconic martial artist and film star turned 60.
Hong Yi, a Malasian artist and architect who goes by RED, wanted to do something special for the big day, so she traveled to Beijing and the two met up to film this delightful video, which begins with a chopstick battle and ends with chopstick art.
RED describes herself as an artist who "loves to paint, but not with a paintbrush," and this isn't her first portrait using strange media. She's done a portrait of Burmese opposition leader and Nobel Peace Prize winner, Aung San Suu Kyi, using 2,000 dyed carnations. And she used sunflower seeds to "paint" Chinese artist and dissident Ai Weiwei.
It's all quite cool.
