Artist Creates Whimsical Paintings Using Spilled Food

Trading ink for coffee, Giulia Bernardelli creates stunning works of art using food as her medium. The Italian artist produces intricate paintings that look as though they've been created by spills or drippings from a spoon. Portraits, animals, and sprawling seas appear so effortlessly crafted that they look like they were just happenstance. But, it's the ease of these whimsical compositions that truly showcases Bernardelli's incredible skill.

Bernardelli has the gift of imagining a material's potential, transforming it into something remarkable. She doesn't plan her work in advance and instead trusts her instincts. "For example," she tells Huffington Post France, "when I drink coffee, I reflect on the nuances that I could create if I flipped it on the table. At breakfast, I can imagine the footprints left by a cat who walked into the jam.”
