Is This Coffee-Stain Art Awesome?

Art comes in many different forms, but we never thought we'd come across this type. Artist Hong “Red” Yi decided to do the unthinkable and created a portrait solely from the ring stains of her coffee mug. We can only guess how long this coffee-stain masterpiece took her, but the portrait of actor Jay Chou is intricate and stands pretty high.



Plus, Yi is no stranger to completing her art with unconventional tools. She's also painted a portrait of basketball player Yao Ming with red paint and a basketball. And if you're interested in how the artist executed her new coffee-strain portrait, just watch the video of Yi's unique artistic method below...and let us know if you think it's just as awesome as we do.

    Awesome medium, also its a way to recycle. A way to also use that nasty cheap coffee that, if you work demos at walmart you might end up with.

    Ok, who's the wise guy? I buy an original coffee stained modern masterpiece for $4,000.00, bring it home, hang it over the sofa, then I look down to see it's signed,..."Ann Lipton?" (Tear on my cheek).

    Each to his own. But what have you done to beautify this world?
  • Resp painted... 2012/03/01 06:53:07

    What have I done? I have not started a disagreement.
  • painted... Resp 2012/03/01 16:50:47

    So how does that answer my question? I said each to his own. But what have YOU done to beatify this world? So it's fine with me, if you don't like this work.
  • Resp painted... 2012/03/01 18:32:47

    You assume that the coffee art has beautified this world. To each his own.

    As a working artist, yes I do think her art form is unique and is beautiful. But yes, there are those that can't see that. So maybe you can tell me what you don't like about it. But you still haven't answered my question. What have you done to beautify this world? Just curious.

    Let me ask you this: Could you do something as amazing as that?
  • Kat Khaos Kat Khaos 2012/04/19 12:20:37

    By that I mean create something entirely unique? Not at all average? And still be an amazing work of art?

    You have to be open-minded and artistic to see the beauty in most things. I'm guessing that you miss out a lot....
