‘Red” Hong Yi called herself an artist-architect who likes to paint, but not with a paintbrush. This motto totally applies to this piece of art she created using a humble coffe cup.

Red was inspired by the opening and closing lines of Taiwanese musician, singer-songwriter Jay Chou’s song entitled ‘Secret.’

The opening line is about lifting a coffee cup off the saucer and the ending line of the song is about autumn leaves and fragmented pieces.

Red got to work using coffee to make stains on a large canvas to create this stunning portrait of Jay Chou. All told, it took her 12 hours to finish it.

She found coffee a tricky medium to work with.

too little water and the rings wouldn’t form easily, too much water and the rings would blend into each other, resulting in just a deformed pool of coffee. I had to also wait for the lighter parts too dry up before stamping on the darker rings, or else the rings would not be visible.

Check out the pictures below of Red create her coffee cup art:
