Coffee painting is not a new form of art but it has been sweeping the globe and dragging people’s eyes on it. as it smells great it is even more soothing to the eyes. If any artist wants to go and try something new he can for sure go for coffee painting. This art form is called an arfé which is derived by combining art and café. Coffee painting is created simply by adding coffee to water and varying the strength to get different tones.
