With Valentine’s Day right around the bend, we thought it was the perfect time to feature artist Pei San Ng’s amor-themed matchstick art. Ng arranged approximately 2,500 match sticks with red tips on a base of reclaimed art board and plywood to form the word “Love.” “Love on fire represents romance and passion or destruction and jealousy. It is raw and gritty,” says Ng of the work. You might be tempted to mimic this symbolic piece as a tribute to the person who sets your heart aflame—just be careful not to do it indoors or while wearing polyester clothing!
