Jay Chou Coffee Stain Portrait

Artist Red Hong (who practices painting without a tradtional brush) creates a portrait using coffee cup stains:

This project was inspired by the opening and closing lines in Jay Chou’s song, ‘Secret/不能说的秘密’. The opening line is about lifting a coffee cup off the saucer, “冷咖啡离开了杯垫” . The ending line of the song is about autumn leaves and fragmented pieces, “飘落后才发现 这幸福的碎片, 要我怎么捡?”. Hundreds of individual coffee stain rings, many of them broken and imperfect like fallen autumn leaves, form a whole portrait.

The project took about 12 hours to finish. Coffee is quite a challenging medium to use - 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.

You can see a video of the piece being made at Red’s blog here

Australian traditional painter Deidre But-Husaim uses up and coming young models as her figure studies then superimposes designs onto their beautifully posed faces and bodies.  The effect looks like beautiful floral tattooing that enhances the innocence of her subjects as she explores the idea of beauty myth and pop culture.

Hippolyte Flandrin (1809-1864), René-Charles Dassy and His Brother Jean-Baptiste-Claude-Amédé Dassy, 1850
The two Dassy brothers, Jean-Baptiste (left) and René-Charles (right) dressed in the height of 1850s men’s fashion. Jean-Baptiste wears an outdoor costume, notably a redingote, and carries gloves and a riding crop or a thin walking stick, a stylish accessory often found illustrated in fashion magazines of the period. René-Charles wears an indoor outfit of embroidered black velvet in an exotic mode known at the time as à la Grec. The clothing of the two brothers indicates both elegance and refinement, and clearly asserts their social status. Their intimate pose also suggests their close relationship, emphasised by their matching signet rings, and the affectionate placement of the older brother’s hand on the younger brother’s shoulder.
