Exciting this year is the welcome addition of Red, Hong Yi, will be joining us at Fiesta Malaysia 2014! Many know her as the artist who ‘loves to paint, but not with a paintbrush’. She creates her art pieces as well as portraits of famous people with everyday items like a basketball, flowers, food and even with coffee stains. Her latest feat... a portrait of famous actor/ director Jackie Chan using... chopsticks!
