Coffee Painting

Coffee painting has been around for ages. To get an insight into this subject, let us talk a little bit about its history. This way of painting which sounds new and modern is actually as old as time itself. The first coffee paintings appeared centuries ago as coffee began to be monopolized in Europe.

The inspiration came from the ancient times where Chinese artists used tea in their art to give their paintings a sort of sepia look. Coffee painting artists love how it gives its own unique texture. It is an outlet for expressions of their own imaginations and emotions.

Now we all know that there is an art that uses coffee as its main ingredient and creating art means that you put all your time and effort into it.
