US artist recreates 'Mona Lisa' with espresso!


August 12, 2011 - London

Have you ever imagined indulging in some coffee art when you're sipping your espresso at a local coffeehouse?

Well, here's an artist from the US who has recreated classic masterpieces like the Mona Lisa using watered-down shots of espresso.

Karen Eland, 38, from Oregon, hit upon the idea to switch her watercolours for a cup of espresso about a decade ago.

She even spent seven months crafting a 20ft mural.

Eland, who had earlier replicated Prince William and Kate's engagement photo, is said to sell her coffee artworks for prices up to 9,000 pounds.

"I do love coffee. But I restrict myself to two cups while painting or I get too shaky," the Sun quoted her as saying.
