10 Best Food Art Masterpieces from Artist "Red" Hong Yi's Month-Long Series

Last month, artist-architect Hong Yi, who also goes by the name Red, embarked on a project in which she would create an image a day using food on a white plate backdrop and post the results on Instagram. She even made a video about the project.

It was a beautiful month for culinary art.

Here are 10 of our favorites.
