“Teh Tarik Man” – A New Large-Scale Portrait Created With 20,000 Tea Bags by Artist Hong Yi aka RED

Teh_Tarik_Man_by_Hong_Yi_2015_01

Using more than 20,000 stained tea bags, Malaysian artist-architect, Hong Yi, also known as Red, produced a commissioned installation for display at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Drawing her inspiration from her roots, Red chose to capture a common sight in Malaysia—the local Teh Tarik man. Teh Tarik, which translates to ‘pulled tea’ in Malay, is a local sweet, frothy tea drink. Red started steeping and dyeing all 20,000 tea bags two months before the installation, shipping the finished tea bags in pizza boxes weighing 200 kilograms to a studio in Davos. The tea bags were eventually assembled and hung off a wooden frame.
