|Tea staining has been used in art-making for centuries in India, and there are many contemporary artists who use tea, coffee and rust in their work. To view sample images of tea staining, rust staining and art made with coffee staining view my Pinterest board here. Those are the things that came to my mind when I first learned of the multi-city Coffee Art Project, that has included London, Milan, Amsterdam, Paris, New York, and Melbourne. And of course the artwork in this project does not have to literally contain coffee, but be about coffee or the coffee drinking experience. You can view past winners by city on the project website here.
Artists may now apply for the Coffee Art Project London 2016! Artists can enter one piece of artwork that connects to coffee or coffee shop/coffee-house experiences. There is no restriction on media providing the artwork links to coffee.
The Coffee Art Project is a high-profile art competition on the theme of coffee. The project provides a platform for artists to showcase their work and raise charitable funds for Project Waterfall, an initiative to bring clean water to coffee growing communities around the world.
The top 30-40 selected works will be exhibited at The London Coffee Festival, that is taking place on 7– 10 April 2016. Competition winners will cash prizes.
It is completely free to enter.
