Dreaded coﬀee spills become whimsical paintings when seen through Italian artist Giulia Bernardelli’s lenses – she transforms these stains into intricate and stunningly realistic human portraits, typography and even images of city skylines. She’s adept at using other food sources like milk, ice cream and even honey for her paintings too, but coﬀee remains a favourite.
The visual artist, who’s a barista by day, combines his talent with passion to create arresting works of art, all documented on this platform. Sometimes it’s a quirky etching on a coﬀee cup; sometimes it’s a more detailed drawing juxtaposed against latte art (made by him, of course). His Coﬀee Powder Series, which uses discarded coﬀee powder as a medium for portraits of people and everyday items, is one of our favourites.
“Coﬀee is therapy to me,” says the owner of popular cafe Habitat Coﬀee. “Like how music heals people, coﬀee-making does very much the same for me.” Little wonder that this translates into dreamy, well-styled pictures of his everyday cup of brew that wouldn’t look at all out of place in an expensive coﬀee-table book.
