Ghidaq al-Nizar Paints with Coffee #ArtTuesday

NewImage

From My Modern Met:

Indonesian artist Ghidaq al-Nizar (aka @coffeetopia) began as a latte artist, but has taken his craft to another level by deconstructing frothy brews and utilizing their most basic component—coffee—as his medium of choice. Al-Nizar takes the steamy, soothing drink out of the cup and artistically applies it to an equally unconventional canvas—a leaf. The result is a series of sepia-toned scenes featuring a beautiful blend of nature and the pigmented, earthy, grainy remnants of a cup of coffee.

Despite the additional effort put in to create each piece, al-Nizar explains why he opts for coffee over traditional paints: “I love intimacy. I feel it with coffee and It’s fun to have fun with something you love. So I can’t find any better medium to celebrate my feelings. Artists have to feel when they do something, and I think it applies for everyone. I have tried to paint using other media but [I didn’t have any feelings for them]. If you can’t feel it, you will leave it.” Despite his unusual materials, al-Nizar still uses a paintbrush to leave his figurative impressions on each leaf.
