Brilliant Artist Creates Beautiful Artwork From Spilled Coffee

Coffee is not just for drinking for Giulia Bernardelli.

Coffee spills are quite annoying as they are sometimes difficult to clean. But one artist turned this problem into something beautiful. Instead of wiping off the spill, she created incredible artwork from it, and the results are simply amazing.

Giulia Bernardelli, better known as Bernulia in her Instagram account, revealed that her creativity in turning coffee spills into art comes from spur-of-the-moment imagination. The 27-year-old Italian artist, who earned her bachelor’s degree from the Academy of Fine Arts of Bologna, shared that her coffee spill artwork all started a year ago when she accidentally spilled coffee on the table.

In awe of the possibilities, Giulia found a way to turn the ugly patch into a work of art.

Giulia Bernardelli said:

“Everything that I needed was around me if I looked carefully. I decided to replace the paintbrush with what nature offered, such as leaves, fruit skins, food. All these elements feature different colors and textures.

I never plan my work in advance. For example, when I drink coffee, I reflect on the nuances that I could create if I turned it over on the table.”

It’s not just “drink coffee” for Giulia.

Artist Perfectly Explains Why Boys Also Need Female Role Models

“Boys are repeatedly told that girls’ things are embarrassing and inferior.”

We all grew up having own personal heroes, whether that hero be an athlete, a musician, a comic book superhero, a loved one, or anyone else for that matter. We look up to them and they inspire us to be our better selves.

So is it ok for a young boy to look up to female role models? The obvious answer to this question, of course, is a resounding “yes” but if you’ll be honest, the sad reality is that society sometimes has the tendency to discriminate genders.

Artist Damian Alexander has personally seen this and even experienced it in his own life. ...
