Chinese Artist Create a Portrait With Coffee Cup Stains

Shanghai based-artist Hong Yi created a portrait of Taiwanese singer Jay Chou by using coffee cup stains. Chou is a famous Chinese singer who starred in The Green Hornet.

It is a long process, the piece took the talented artist 12 hours to complete, simply because she was using coffee instead of a brush and paint.

Apparently, The coffee mixture and placement had to be perfect every time since the rings were instantly permanent.

“Too little water and the rings wouldn’t form easily, too much water and the rings would blend into each other, resulting in just a deformed pool of coffee. I had to also wait for the lighter parts too dry up before stamping on the darker rings, or else the rings would not be visible. ” said Hong Yi
