This Incredible Artist ‘Brews’ His Paint, The Results Are Intoxicating.
One of the great things that can happen to an artist is finding a medium that allows for the opportunity to perfect one's craft. For Ghidaq al-Nizar, his medium became the delicious, hot morning drink that gets him through the day: coffee. The Indonesian painter dips his brushes into his brewed drink to create delicate and intricate paintings.
To take his art to another level, al-Nizar does not only rely on a cloth canvas, but also paints on plates, paper, and leaves. The artist ensures no part of the coffee goes to waste; he uses both the java and the ground java beans to complete his work.
al-Nizar explains the reason he loves to use coffee over traditional paints is because he has, “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."
