Indonesian artist creating #zerowastecoffee art of nature and fae using used coffee grounds

Artist and environmentalist Ghidaq al-Nizar incorporates his love of nature and a zero-waste coffee philosophy to create stunning artworks using used coffee grounds and leaves as “canvas” and “paint”.

Dipping a paint brush in a cup of coffee, Ghidaq al-Nizar draws landscapes, animals, fantasy art and fae, then he adds his special signature of used coffee grounds to flesh out his paintings. And leaves, paper and plates are just some of the materials he uses to paint on.

For his most recent series, Womb of Love, the Indonesia based artist uses coffee-stained fingerprints to emulate the womb, while the expectant mother figurines are formed using used coffee grounds.

The Womb of Love series pays tribute to the mothers of the world, and Ghidaq al-Nizar even used his own mother’s fingerprint for the paintings.

Ghidaq al-Nizar was inspired to do art when he received a latte Rosetta, and was underwhelmed by the pattern. He started with latte art, but eventually added coffee grounds to his art, too, as #zerowastecoffee.
