See One Artist Literally Set Fire to Rain to Create a Portrait of Adele

Says RED (otherwise known as British visual artist Hong Yi), "I’m doing a [four-part] project involving the four basic elements: fire, water, wind, and earth. ... To me, Adele was probably singing about the pains of a lost relationship. Rain may be a metaphor for her tears she cried, and she is setting fire to it to burn and destroy her pain. I’ve used blue candles to represent tears, and by setting fire to them, they melt and flow into each other, forming a portrait of Adele.”
