Inspiration Station: Hong Yi coffee-stain portrait

I am a huge fan of Etsy, and follow them on Facebook, particularly because their updates often bring me stories of artists that inspire me.

Today’s art comes from Hong Yi, a Malaysian artist who uses normal, mundane objects to create art that exemplifies “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”

Coffee stains.  Seriously.  This portrait was created with coffee stains. Talk about getting inspired by the little things.
