Ghidaq al-Nizar has an interesting palette for his paintings. 

On his Instagram account–appropriately titled “coffeetopia”– al-Nizar posts photos of his creations, which are made solely from used coffee products (grounds included!). 

Coffee art, particularly coffee painting, is a form of niche art practiced by many. But al-Nizar, an artist based in Indonesia, is taking the craft to the next level.

He occasionally forgoes paper, opting to use leaves as his canvas instead.

He also makes sculptures from his used coffee grounds. He photographs the sculptures and posts them on Instagram under #zerowastecoffee.

Al-Nizar’s Instagram account, which has over 22,000 followers (oh, yeah, quite the buzz), has a bio that reads, “It is about how much we love the thing we love and how we celebrate our life with it.”

And on top of all of that, Al-Nizar makes crazy colorful latté foam art.

Can your barista do that with your drinks?
