Watch This Artist Create a Caffeinated Masterpiece With Coffee Cup Stains

By Andrew Liszewski on at

I couldn't paint someone's portrait even if I had access to DaVinci's brushes, paints, and other tools. So I'm completely mesmerised by Hong Yi's ability to create this image of singer Jay Chou with nothing but spilled coffee and a mug.

The piece took about 12 hours to complete, and besides being difficult for the simple fact that she was painting with a porcelain cup instead of a brush, apparently the coffee mixture and placement had to be perfect every time since the rings were instantly permanent.

I wish my tablecloth looked like this by the end of the week, then I wouldn't feel so bad about not washing it. [Oh I See Red via Laughing Squid via Coudal]
