"Mark Zuckerberg" and "Game of Thrones" - these are some of the most popular trends of the last two years. A Malay artist Hong Yi decided to combine this big name and the big name into a single whole - she created a very unusual portrait of the founder of the social network Facebookbuilt from books by George Martin.
An artist from Malaysia, Hong Yi, acting under the pseudonym RED, should be well known to regular readers of the site. Culturology.RF… After all, it was she who created such unusual works as a portrait of a man from 750 pairs of socks, drawings made by footprints from a cup of coffee and pictures of paper flowers.
Another unusual work of the Malay artist is the portrait of the founder of the social network Facebook. Hong Yi interpreted the very word "facebook" as "a face made of books." She ended up with an image of Mark Zuckerberg reproduced from thirty-six copies of Game of Thrones.
The idea to create a portrait of Zuckerberg was born to Hung Yi during her trip to the United States of America, where she gave a lecture at an art conference in California. In the States, this artist, known for her unusual portraits, asked the inhabitants of the country which of their compatriots she should portray. And the overwhelming majority of the interlocutors answered: "Mark Zuckerberg."
As a result, Hong Yi took dozens of books, folded them together and carved the face of one of the most famous modern Americans into a solid block of paper.
Why was Game of Thrones used? Hong Yi explains her choice by the fact that this book was the thickest one she could find in the bookstore.
