Inspired by the opening and closing lines of Jay Chou’s song “Secret” as well as the complementing movie, the Hong Yi wanted to create this sepia-toned old photograph of Jay Chou that represents the essence of the storyline of the movie. The portrait is formed by thousands of coffee stain rings, many of them broken and imperfect like fallen autumn leaves. 12 extremely challenging hours later the painting is completed and it tells the story of a lost romance with a girl from 1979 who time-traveled forward 20 years and met Jay in 1999, and they fell in love. She then went back to 1979 and sketched a portrait of him. The delicate nature and meaning behind each stain is absolutely inspiring and beautiful.
