Our friends and sponsors Depositphotos launched a brand new blog "Bird" dedicated to the world of Photography. They asked us to come across their latest content presented both on Russian and English and select the interesting portfolio for our readers. People have only recently recognized Cypriot fashion designer Maria Aristidou as a coffee-artist — on March 25th, after actor Hugh Laurie posted the artist’s portrait of him on his Facebook, calling it “magnificent.” The painting spread quickly and Maria’s first thousand followers soon appeared; at the moment she has about 9,500 followers on her Instagram.
On her own Facebook, Aristidou said that her idea to paint with coffee came by accident: “I was working on one project and spilled coffee all over it. I should have been upset, but instead I became interested in how to include coffee in art.” Maria uses several types of coffee in her work — from unpretentious americano and espresso to specialty Cypriot varieties.
