Artist Maria A. Aristidou creates some amazing homages to popular culture and classical pieces of art, she really has got an incredible eye for beauty.
But it's the process of creation that struck me at first - how is it that she creates these aged looking, strikingly explosive paintings?
With water and five different blends of coffee! Here's Aristidou's explanation of her tasty art:
Coming from the art background, love of commercial art and of course coffee, coffee painting has been one of my recent projects.
I made the first illustration by an accident. Now I mostly create things and figures that I love, which makes painting them much more fun and challenging in order to get the right shape and shade.
Alright, enough going on about the art...
Let's take a look!
