While the rest of us are finishing off the last drops of our morning coffee, Giulia Bernardelli is using what remains in her cup to create stunning works of art in her kitchen.
This 28-year old Italian illustrator and food artist, known on Instagram as Bernulia, makes amazing art with leftover foods such as spilled coffee, breakfast and ice cream too.
While most of her artwork is done with spilled coffee, Giulia creates her artworks with a spoon or whatever else is nearby. Portraits, animals, and sprawling seas appear so effortlessly crafted that they look like they were just happenstance. But, it’s the ease of these whimsical compositions that truly showcases Giulia’s incredible skill.
“Everything that I needed was around me, if I looked carefully. I decided to replace the paint brush with what nature offered, such as leaves, fruit skins, food. All these elements feature different colors and textures.”
It was only by chance that she came across coffee as a medium for her art; Giulia accidentally knocked over a cup of coffee and noticed a world of beautiful shapes before her. None of her creations are planned in advance. She prefers them to have the feeling of being found creations that were stumbled upon by happenstance with an fly-by-night quality.
So, what can you do with food and coffee? Just eat & drink, right. Check out more spilled coffee from this food artist on her Instagram. And for more artistic drinks, take a look at this impressive 3D latte art or Cremart.
