“STRENGTH ” “I think my name speaks for it­self. “Red” be­came my name – as de­cided by my friends – be­cause my sur­name, Hong, trans­lates into the colour in Can­tonese. It is bold and strong. The best “red” I’ve cre­ated is my piece on Aung San Suu Kyi who sac­ri­ficed her per­sonal hap­pi­ness for her peo­ple. I’m a mix­ture of sev­eral shades and my per­son­al­ity switches around, but red is im­por­tant in this world be­cause noth­ing re­ally func­tions with­out pas­sion, love, and sac­ri­fice – at­tributes sig­na­ture of the colour red.”
