The magnificent mosaics created by Hong Hao, one of China’s most famous contemporary artists today, are made up of everyday household objects. Unlike similar collaged creations, Hong Hao's work doesn't focus on arranging the physical items as though it were a real life game of Tetris. Instead, his process includes scanning, configuring and enhancing the image to come to a final product that he then proceeds to print.

Inspired by the rising consumerism in China, Hong Hao includes such ordinary objects as rice cookers, toys, cups, books on Mao Zedong and even Nintendo game controllers in his eclectic works of art. Hong Hao's collection will be at the Pace Gallery in Beijing from March 16 to April 27.
