Mona Lisa In Coffee

Its amazing to see how artists portray their skills in ways to create their own identity and popularity. In Sydney an artist and his assistants 'paint' the Mona Lisa using 3,604 cups of coffee blended with different amount of milk to create the colour tones. It was a project organized at Rocks Aroma Festivals in Sydney,  Australia and was seen by 130,000 people who attended the one-day coffee lovers event.


The painting, measuring 20 feet high and 13 feet wide took a team of eight people three hours to complete.

Boyourennaisanceman's blog wrote verbatim;

Elaine Kelly, from organisers the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority, was delighted with the result.


She said: ‘Each coffee cup was filled with varying amounts of milk to create the different sepia shades of the painting.

‘We wanted to create an element of surprise and a sense of fun in the way we engaged with the public.

‘Once we had the idea of creating an image out of coffee cups we searched for something iconic to reproduce - and opted for the most iconic painting in history.
